Ferrari may replace team principal Maurizio Arrivabene
•Mattia Binotto expected to take reins after disappointing season
•Chief technical officer Binotto has been at Ferrari since 1995
Ferrari are expected to replace their team principal, Maurizio Arrivabene, with their chief technical officer, Mattia Binotto, but have refused to comment on speculation that they are to do so. The team had previously denied there was any change of leadership expected, despite failing to mount a season-long challenge to Mercedes in 2018 but reports claim the Scuderia has already dispensed with Arrivabene.
Ferrari responded with no comment when asked by the Guardian on the veracity of the reports and the team have yet to make any official statement. Arrivabene, however, has recently overseen two seasons in which the Scuderia have been found wanting against Mercedes. Last year in particular, despite having the quicker car for considerable periods, a series of driver errors by Sebastian Vettel were compounded by team mistakes that saw their challenge falter and Lewis Hamilton take the title with two races remaining.
