NEWS STORY
10/12/2020

In a shock move, Ferrari CEO, Louis Camilleri has announced that he is leaving the company and retiring with immediate effect.

"Ferrari has been a part of my life and serving as its Chief Executive has been a great privilege," said Camilleri, who took on the role in July 2018 following the resignation of Sergio Marchionne who died just a few days later.

"My admiration for the extraordinary men and women of Maranello and for the passion and dedication they apply to everything they do, knows no bounds," he added.

"I'm proud of the company's numerous achievements since 2018 and know that Ferrari's best years are still to come."

His position as CEO will be filled on an interim basis by Executive Chairman, John Elkann who said: "I would like to express our most sincere thanks to Louis for his unstinting dedication as our Chief Executive Officer since 2018 and as member of our Board of Directors since 2015.

"His passion for Ferrari has been limitless and under his leadership the company has further affirmed its position as one of the world's greatest companies, capitalising on its truly unique heritage and unerring quest for excellence.

"We wish him and his family a long and happy retirement."

At the same time, Camilleri has relinquished his role as Chairman of Philip Morris International, with whom he has been affiliated since 1978.

The news comes at a time the Italian team is likely to finish sixth in the constructor standings, its worst finish since 1980 when it finished 10th.

"Also retired from Philip Morris. Are they looking to pull their funding of Ferrari F1?
Binotto back in Italy as well, are these events linked?

I love a good conspiracy theory :-)"

"Conspiracy theory anyone, just for some levity of course.

Does the return of George Pell to the Vatican with his knowledge and "discoveries" of Holy See finances have an effect on Ferrari's funding or do Ferrari have an effect on inflows to Papal coffers?"

"This is quite a shock announcement...to us anyway. I would tend to think that this is no mere 'retirement' and that there will be further information coming down sooner or later. He was one of the good guys apparently."
