Ferrari has officially confirmed that Mattia Binotto is its new team principal with immediate effect, as Maurizio Arrivabene leaves.

Following reports in the Italian media earlier today, tonight Ferrari issued the following statement:

After four years of untiring commitment and dedication, Maurizio Arrivabene is leaving the team. The decision was taken together with the company’s top management after lengthy discussions related to Maurizio’s long term personal interests as well as those of the team itself.

Ferrari would like to thank Maurizio for his valuable contribution to the team’s increasing competiveness over the past few years, and wish him the best for his future endeavours.

With immediate effect, Mattia Binotto will take over as Scuderia Ferrari’s Team Principal. All technical areas will continue to report directly to Mattia.

The announcement comes just over a month before the Maranello outfit takes the wraps off its 2019 contender.

"Binotto is not the right person to run the racing team. He should remain in the engineering department. Ferrari needs a real expert who can manage/run their racing department. "

"When are they going to cut all that nonsense. They guy was a Ferrari sales man in the US, Maybe a good one but it hardly qualifies someone as the team boss of an F1 team, a point he was allowed to demonstrate for 4 seasons. FOUR !! Ferrari gave away at least 2 championships in that time. Mr Binotto is again the wrong choice. He is an engineer, not a race strategist, not a manager. He is a technical guy and that is where he should stay, with all due respect for his qualities in such functions. "

"The best of Ferrari racing history:

Jean Todt left rss Brawn alone and Ross Brawn left Rory Byrne alone - and ALL THREE left Michael Schumacher alone.

I cannot remember a team that won when the Team Principal was also the Technical Director. That is a recipe for problems, especially when one of the drivers appears to be emotionally temperamental and the other driver is a team rookie."

"Maybe they are just setting up their excuses early:
"Mattia Binotto was too late to have an influence on this year's car - it's all Maurizio's fault..""

"I think the headline should read : "Ferrari shoots itself in the foot....again". Obviously the Italian mentality just doesnt comprehend "continuity""
