Mattia Binotto Is A New Team Principal Of Ferrari

“Former technical boss Mattia Binotto is a new team principal of Ferrari, after replacing Maurizio Arrivabene.”

Ferrari president John Elkann has decided that Mattia Binotto is the right man to lead the Italian stable in 2019.

Binotto takes immediate charge of the team. And according to Ferrari, “All technical areas will report directly to him.”

Before Binotto, Arrivabene was on this role for four years. He had been boss of the team since December 2014 and before this, he was the vice president of the tobacco giant Philip Morris.
