Ferrari yet to find fix for problems, Binotto admits
Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has admitted that the SF90's current failings are unlikely to be fixed any time soon. Regardless, the Scuderia chief has confidence ahead of this week's Canadian Grand Prix as the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve may suit their car.

Ferrari have pinpointed a lack of downforce as crucial to their struggles. However, with Mercedes having won all six races so far this year, Binotto's latest revelation may suggest the Silver Arrows' run could continue.
"Thinking of Canada, there are so many memories of past seasons that come to mind," Binotto said. "This track has usually produced some exciting and unexpected racing.
