F1 news: Ferrari chief reveals Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc demand this season ! News

That’s according to team boss Mattia Binotto, with many expecting Vettel to be given priority for Ferrari this season Sebastian Vettel is a four-time world champion and will be partnered by Leclerc this season with the 21-year-old in his debut season with Ferrari

Leclerc replaced Kimi Raikkonen having had a best finish of sixth with Sauber last season Many are tipping Leclerc to shine with Ferrari, though Vettel is the more experienced driver Binotto though has revealed the pair will be told to compete and that team orders won’t be issued "They will be free to fight," Binotto said “We will not ask Charles to go slow or Sebastian to be faster

“We need both of them to run to the maximum and try to do their best "But certainly if there is any ambiguous situation at the start of the season, Sebastian is the one who has got more experience “He has been with us many years, he has already won championships, so he is our champion” Leclerc was impressive in pre-season testing this week, with Ferrari dominating the pace But the Monaco man has sent a warning, telling the rest of Formula One that Ferrari still have more to come

“Obviously I think as [with] everything we are not flat-out,” he said “There’s still some margin, a bit obviously in myself I still have to learn and get more comfortable with the car “It hasn’t changed since day one, to be honest The car feels comfortable from day one “The balance is pretty nice and it hasn’t changed today

So it’s a positive day “Especially after the lack of running yesterday it’s a good morning for us It’s good to be on top but it doesn’t mean anything”
