Ferrari team boss Maurizio Arrivabene is fired, his job is taken over by former technology director Mattia Binotto.
On Monday, Arrivabene had again declared this to be ‘fake news’ yet again, as the Italian papers claimed that the team boss is to be removed in
But it appears true that Arrivabene is indeed to be replaced by Binotto, although an official announcement has yet to be made. Several UK mainstream news outlets are now picking up on the story.
For months there have been rumours of a power struggle within Ferrari, with Binotto and Arrivabene
At the time Sky Italia reported on the shock within the team, an anonymous source within Ferrari said:
“The loss of Sergio Marchionne at the end of July weighed heavily. You have to imagine that, like removing a pillar in a building. Everyone rushes to their aid, it is repaired, but the matter is not solved”
“Marchionne had planned another future, with a more important role for Binotto. We do not know what exactly that should have been. But there is no doubt that he had more to say. Binotto is not a man of little ambition.
“There is not much harmony between him and Arrivabene, and two million offers from other teams have contributed to that. So we have plenty of reason for abdominal pain. “
The initial plans of Sergio Marchionne would more than likely promoted Binotto further into the team management role. Much like Sergio’s plans for Leclerc to move into the senior team from Sauber, his replacement John Elkann has again put in motion his predecessors’ wishes.
It is unclear who will replace Binotto as head of Ferrari’s technical department.
