    [Sportbild] Insiders are sure: If Arrivabene stays after this year, Ferrari won‘t be competitive anymore. If Mattia Binotto finally gets the promotion, the title for 2019 is very much possible. Vettel can hope. Elkann‘s plan are looking like a promotion for Binotto

    [Sportbild] One of John Elkann‘s plans are to make Mattia Binotto sporting director / team principal. But Elkann wants him to focus also on the technical side. That‘s why the plan is to appoint a 2nd director who will only be responsible for the financial/political things

    Agree MA has reached the end but Binotto's car has fallen apart two seasons in a row.

Ferrari has been on the edge all the time compared to Merc these last two seasons. They have been so close to surpass them that they could taste it. If you're constantly "almost there" then the room for errors is very narrow. You can only look like a genius or a complete fool depending on what happens. Merc have the luxury if being able to let Ferrari come that close but they know that they only need to play the percentage game of playing it safe because they know how high Ferrari are playing with all factors in mind. The only thing to do for the future is to learn from it and not make the same mistakes. That's all there is.
    I agree with this. Ferrari is always on the edge, development wise and decision wise. We have been very aggressive with our approach and it worked in the begining, but it is normal to take a wrong turn when you are on the edge with everything. Mercedes and their drivers have that luxury you mentioned with percentage. We had to be aggressive, elsewhere we wouldn't have been so close, but we are paying the price nowadays.

    I like Maurizio and I hope he stays. Binotto needs to think more about how to make the car competitive again and less about promotions. He did it before he can do it again.
