An official statement from Ferrari was initially not available. There was speculation about a separation of Scuderia from Binotto recently around the season finale in Abu Dhabi. When asked if he would still be team boss at Ferrari in 2023, Binotto replied a few days ago: “It’s not up to me to decide, but I’m pretty relaxed. The reason I’m relaxed is because I always have open, honest and constructive discussions with my bosses and my chairman”.

Binotto’s successor is said to be Frederic Vasseur. The 54-year-old Frenchman has been Team Principal at Sauber, which was later renamed Alfa Romeo, since 2017. The racing team works closely with Ferrari.

Binotto joined Scuderia in 1995 and served as engine engineer for Michael Schumacher during his Ferrari era. The Swiss later rose to become technical director before replacing Maurizio Arrivabene as team boss in early 2019 after a power struggle.

Ferrari last won the drivers’ title in 2007 with Kimi Raikkonen, and the last time the constructors’ championship was in 2008. Even the four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel was not able to lead the Scuderia all the way to the top in his time from 2015 to 2020.

In the past season, Charles Leclerc finished second in the World Championship behind Max Verstappen in the Red Bull. After three races, Monegasse was even 46 points ahead of the Dutchman. Driving mistakes, strategy failures and technical problems cost an even better result afterwards.
