Mattia Binotto about to lose job

Ferrari head Mattia Binotto was absent from Brazilian GP. Although the Italian has long since explained the reasons for his absence, speculation about a possible end at the Scuderia is persistent. Now it is said to have finally come to an end.

According to sources close to the Maranello, it points to a possible replacement after the season.

The report explains it was the British Grand Prix at the beginning of July that caused Binotto’s star to fall internally at the Scuderia. Although Carlos Sainz, a Ferrari driver, won the race ahead of Sergio Pérez and Lewis Hamilton, top driver Charles Leclerc went home in fourth place as one of the big losers. Ferrari had botched the pit stop and thus deprived him of a possible victory.

The Italian reporter Leo Turrini said "Mattia Binotto was not in the pits at Interlagos. His deputy, the Frenchman [Laurent] Mekies, said no: 'it would be dangerous, [Fernando] Alonso is very close to you'. So, everything remained as it was. Sainz third, Leclerc fourth. Now Charles has the same points as Perez in the rankings. Controversy... The feeling is that the disappointing seasonal ending has raised the nervousness inside Ferrari to danger level."

Ferrari president John Elkann, who had defended Binotto against criticism, is said to have changed his mind in the meantime.
