Will Mattia Binotto reinvigorate unruly Ferrari’s F1 fortunes? | Giles Richards
Ferrari’s new team principal has just five weeks before testing in Barcelona but his appointment is perhaps the best they have made in recent years
Precious little time remains for the new Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto to grasp the reins of his singularly demanding prancing horse. Having been chosen to replace Maurizio Arrivabene on Monday, it is just five weeks before Formula One hits the ground running at the first test in Barcelona.
Nor is that his only concern, he takes on the most high-profile management role in the sport, under intense scrutiny and demanding the greatest results. A task compounded by inheriting a Scuderia that has been unruly, skittish and left once more licking its wounds after defeat last season. Yet Ferrari’s decision to go with Binotto was positive and bold, perhaps it is the best they have made in recent years.
