F1 boss urges Ferrari to find a solution after Binotto's resignation

Formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali has urged Ferrari to "find a solution" after the resignation of Mattia Binotto as Team Principal.

Binotto resigned on Tuesday after four seasons at the helm, having failed to capitalise on the promise of Ferrari's 2022 season with the team making continued operational and strategic mistakes as well as suffering poor reliability.

Although they claimed second in the Constructors' Championship – with Charles Leclerc taking the same place in the Drivers' – this was not enough to save Binotto's job, who will leave the Scuderia after 28 years on 31 December.

And Domenicali – the last Ferrari boss to deliver a championship with the 2008 Constructors' title – believes his former team need to quickly appoint Binotto's successor.

Domenicali on Binotto

"Of course when you are second in Ferrari, it is something that is not enough," Domenicali explained to Sky Sports F1.

"I was in the same position many years ago, and I want [Binotto] to stay focused and believe in himself.

"I don't want to get into the dynamic of the team, but for sure, I want to wish him the best for the future.

"I really hope that Ferrari will find the right solution to stay on-track and focus, as they [have done] a big recovery from where they were two years ago (sixth in the 2020 season).

"We need Ferrari to be competitive, to have a good, strong team with strong drivers to fight against the others.

"I am sure there will be more teams fighting for first and other positions [in 2023] – that is the dream."
