    Translation-->On the rumors that are circulating regarding a dismissal of Binotto, at least from what I understand it seems impossible that it can happen now, or at least until the 2022 car which must be at least competitive,
    unless the season is extremely disappointing.



    He basically said that Binotto is already fired, per his sources. His source is probably Marc Gene. They are now waiting for how the new car will perform. If car will be good, they say their goodbye to Binotto in nice way, if won't they say their goodbye in a bad way.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    "The fact that Maranello intends to part with the head of the F1 team, said a racer driving a Ferrari"

    "Ferrari has already decided on the fate of Binotto, but is waiting for the upcoming tests in Bahrain to see how quickly the new car will go. If SF21 turns out to have the pace, Mattia can count on words of gratitude and a different tone in the press release about the layoff."

    "Turkish journalist Serhan Akar, who holds a post at the national racing federation TOSFED, tweeted on Friday evening that Binotto will step down as head of the F1 team and will represent Ferrari in the FIA ​​World Council."

    Binotto isn't going anywhere. But the guy who has been posting BS rumors about Ferrari and Binotto is definitely going somewhere. He needs to get the boot. And Ferrari should sue that ****** **** for posting fake info's.

    Wouldn’t be nice to re-adopt mandatory number 1 for the world champion?

    As I've said before, this stupid sack of cells needs to get fired. This is the same guy who had also sprayed fake rumors about Sainz.

    That would make no sense, timing would be stupid and a top engineer will be free to flourish elsewhere at a rival. They guy who said this is a low down GT driver, that's like the cleaning lady from the ground floor knowing intricate details of board meetings and the fate of a senior board member.

    Indeed would make no sense at all, another talented Ferrair member that will end up with Mercedes or so haven't we learned a thing from the past then?

    I hate the hate binotto gets. Some of it isn't criticism, it's nasty, vindictive, toxic stuff. This man has Ferrari in his DNA, he cares more than most who associate themselves with the Scuderia and he is humble and dignified, unlike alot of other people in this sport.

    I don't believe they will fire Bonotto.
    Even if the car is rubbish. And definitely I don't want to belive that they will allow him to join another team.
    Having him as Ferrari representative in FIA, could be a good way to keep him on board and take the TO role from him.
    But not a couple of weeks before new season start!

    Strange things can happen at ferrari in a blink of an eye and usually no body even sees the event coming.If binotto is moved on or fired its just another day at maranello all is normal.

    "Misinterpreted and taken out of context"....and that makes it all right I guess, it was just a misunderstanding!

    Guy just wanted to get some attentions I guess. But there should be consequences. This guy needs to get the boot.

    It's not just Binotto, It's Ferrari in general. Just look at the sheer amounts of dis-information's here regarding the 2019 engine and so on. And this place is supposed to be a Ferrari support forum.

    Hear you. Nobody wants to give this guy a chance. Every one wants him fired but where do they think TP's or TD's come from? They have to learn and get experience from somewhere. Give the dude a chance, he's been with Ferrari for 20+ years and done well in multiple roles. You're going to get rid of him now and the what.... start over again. Like Groundhog day all over again with Ferrari fans.

    Binotto's only real shortcoming proved to be his not knowing how to enforce the Ferrari team orders rules that Todt so forcefully enforced. Seb was expecting Shumy like rules and when Charles did his driving without the 1,2 rules being enforced , Seb just couldn't be Shumy; and had to fight for points against his team mate as well as all the others. Seb was used to Sunday drives up front @ R Bull and lacked the mid track experience now needed . He for sure tried his best with what he had but spinning out etc. caused his demise points wise. If Ferrari had stronger points coming in from both drivers ; Binotto could at least have had a chance at doing better at his job of running the show and getting the team up in the front running. I can't wait to see Sainz vs. Charles vs. Merc; R Bull 2021 !! Binotto swears there are no 1,2 team orders.

    It seems the spinoff of Ferrari from FIAT and the subsequent creation of Stellantis has left Ferrari without much influence in the sport... just an observation, could be completely incorrect....
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...

    To get the Schumi treatment, you need to be as fast as Schumi, if not, at least consistently faster than your teammate. Binotto used team orders against Leclerc and did all he could to appease Vettel in 2019 but he simply wasn't fast enough.

    I agree with your saying Seb wasn't fast enough to be ahead of Charles one on one. But... that's what I meant by Binotto not enforcing team orders. Charles didn't move over and let Seb pass. Binotto may have tried but to no avail . I'm sure Binotto never did what Todt did for Schumy telling Rubens move over or you will lose your seat. I'm glad he didn't! Charles raced to win. I respect him for that. And now he's up there with the top drivers for sure. And Seb with 4 WDCs is also to be admired for time served in F-1. And I need the races to start !!!!
