Ferrari replaces Arrivabene as team boss

Maurizio Arrivabene has been replaced as Ferrari team principal by former technical boss Mattia Binotto.

Arrivabene had held the role for four years and a Ferrari statement said the decision was made by “the company’s top management after lengthy discussions.”

Binotto takes immediate charge and Ferrari said “all technical areas will continue to report directly” to him.

Ferrari failed to win either title in 2018 amid a series of driver and management errors.

Arrivabene, 61, had been boss of the team since December 2014, joining from main sponsor, the tobacco giant Philip Morris, where he was a vice-president.

He was in charge of Ferrari while the team enjoyed a revival in competitiveness in the last two seasons.

But he was widely seen within F1 as a Ferrari figurehead only, with the real power instead resting with former president Sergio Marchionne, who masterminded a reshuffle of the technical department in 2016 but died from complications during surgery for cancer last July.

Marchionne’s intention before his death had been to remove Arrivabene and replace him with Binotto, who had led the team’s technical department to a series of widely copied design innovations since 2016. (BBC)
