Maurizio Arrivabene is set to leave his position as the team boss at Ferrari to be replaced by Mattia Binotto. Binotto previously worked as the Scuderia's chief technical director and reported to Arrivabene.
Arrivabene was appointed Ferrari's team principal towards the end of the 2014 season following a disastrous campaign. He replaced Marco Mattiacci who had only been appointed earlier that year. The Italian has led Ferrari back into title contention, as it has contended for the championship over the last two seasons.
However, it slipped away in the second half of the 2017 and 2018 seasons, with a series of on-track and development errors contributing to the downfall. The 2018 campaign was arguably its strongest yet, however reports soon emerged that there were disputes behind the scenes. Arrivabene threw a cold shoulder to the media throughout his reign and used intimidation well to influence his team.
Binotto was appointed as the team's technical director midway through the 2016 season following the departure of James Allison. Before that, he worked as part of the team's KERS development and the chief operating officer on the engine development side.
