    Again it’d be sad to seem him go and end up at Merc, like all the good talent Ferrari let go in the past
    I felt sad too, to hear that he's about to/got sacked.
    He did deliver on a strong base, the F1-75, but probably had plans to refine the package into 2023.
    My opinion is that he needed a shield to protect him from the pressures of the higher management and an enforcer as well.

    But, if the rumors are true about his sacking.
    Then, I dont see Ferrari getting out of this rut anytime soon.

    Vasseur will make Leclerc the de facto #1 role at Ferrari.

    That's a plus.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    - Vasseur as Team Principal
    - Aldo Costa as Technical Director
    - Ross Brawn as Advisor
    - Rueda kicked out

    That would be the best solution.
    KEEP CALM AND LOVE FERRARI

    I've just seen this mentioned too, I find it hard to believe that nobody seems to want the poisoned chalice that a TP of Ferrari can be. Has the entry into the WEC Hypercar class drained Ferrari talent completely?

    Has it been verified by any reliable source?

    I'm reading Paul Hembrey(Pirelli) and Coletta from the 499P program are throwing in their names in the hat.

    Rumour mill gathers that it is Vasseur. I just hope he is strong enough to get the job done,

    Everyone concentrate to the TP.
    And no word for the other crucial job, that of the TD...

    There is a senior engineer coming from Mercedes. Whether he can step up to TD I don't know but Binotto must have had an understudy. who can take over..

    I thought Laurent Mekies was supposed to be Binotto's trackside assistant, someone correct me if I'm wrong! Is he staying in his position, do we know?

    OMG we are in more trouble. Let's hope they re-jigger some key positions like Mekies' and Rueda's. It could be a can of worms.

    Mekies was Assistant Team Principal and Racing Director.

    Still no new information.

    Thanks, I thought that was his role, don't know if he's staying but it looks like the French may be taking over where Binotto left off. All being kept quiet, apart from the rumours!

    It seems to me that mistakes could be more Makies and Rudea's fault not Binotto's. He took responsibility but that doesn't change the cause

    I remember when in 2020 we were hoping that Binotto would stay at the factory so Marie's would run the team...

    We may never know for sure, Mattia Binotto was obviously very reserved and didn't openly criticise anyone in the team, which some people regard as a failure to perform his duty!

    F1 | Alfa Romeo: official, Vasseur leaves in January for Ferrari

    The Hinwil team greeted the CEO and team principal of Sauber Motorsport with a statement. A cycle that lasted six years in which the Swiss team grew to sixth place in the Constructors' championship in 2022 comes to an end. The first step has been taken: now we have to wait for the announcement from Ferrari which will appoint him team principal from the new year.

    Hopefully Fred will do what Binotto refused to do, clean Ferrari off incompetence and send Rueda and Marcos packing.
