Scuderia Ferrari has announced a statement that Mattia Binotto has resigned as Team Principal and will leave his role at the end of 2022.
Binotto has been a part of Ferrari for twenty-eight years after joining the team in 1995 as an engine engineer. He has been an integral part of the team, which saw a lot of success in the early 2000s with Michael Schumacher.
In 2013, Binotto became the head of the engine department and three years later in 2016, he was promoted to Chief Technical Officer. Over this period of time, Ferrari continued to compete for race wins and in 2019, Binotto was made Team Principal.
Ferrari’s CEO, Benedetto Vigna, thanked Binotto for his dedication to the team and for helping Ferrari get back to a position of competitiveness as he wishes him well for the future.
“I would like to thank Mattia for his many great contributions over 28 years with Ferrari and particularly for leading the team back to a position of competitiveness during this past year.”
