Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has resigned. The 53-year-old’s last day will be on 31 December.

During last season’s constructors’ championship, Ferrari finished second. The team’s number one driver Charles Leclerc also ended second after Max Verstappen from Red Bull took the drivers’ championship.

It’s believed that Binotto resigned following a series of Ferrari errors which played a big role in Leclerc not winning the championship.

“With the regret that this entails, I have decided to conclude my collaboration with Ferrari. I am leaving a company that I love, which I have been part of for 28 years, with the serenity that comes from the conviction that I have made every effort to achieve the objectives set.”

Binotto has high hopes for the team’s future.

“I leave a united and growing team. A strong team, ready, I’m sure, to achieve the highest goals, to which I wish all the best for the future. I think it is right to take this step at this time as hard as this decision has been for me.”

It’s unclear at this stage who will be taking over the reigns at the Italian team.
