Following a disappointing 2018 championship, Scuderia Ferrari hired a new team principal. In other words, Maurizio Arrivabene was let go and technical chief, Mattia Binotto replaced him. Unfortunately, Ferrari did not manage to improve, this time with Binotto at the helm. Now, some have suggested that Alfa Romeo boss Frederic Vasseur should replace Binotto.
“I think that if you were to put Frederic Vasseur in Binotto’s position, things would turn out very differently. He is my favourite, I would like to see him there,” Dutch Motorsport journalist Jack Plooij said to the Grand Prix Radio podcast. He noted that Binotto tends to be too careful in his approach to managing the team. However, Plooij believes that Scuderia Ferrari believe in only one kind of approach, but it is not Binotto’s.
He cited the example of Michael Schumacher who had a big hand in fostering this thought. The German legend managed to bring the right people to the Ferrari team that ruled the early 2000s era. Podcast host, Robin Leféber also echoed the sentiments and admitted that Binotto is ‘too nice’.
