Ferrari slam 'fake' Binotto rumours aimed at causing 'instability'

Written by  Nov 06, 2018

Ferrari team boss Maurizio Arrivabene has slammed rumours of technical director Mattia Binotto's departure as "fake news" aimed at destabilising the team.

Reports of unrest within Maranello are not exactly uncommon with some suggestions Binotto, who is widely praised for his role in the Scuderia's resurgence since 2017, could eventually replace Arrivabene at the helm.

During the annual Finali Mondiali event at Monza this past weekend, however, the Italian ruled out claims Binotto could be heading to Renault or even Mercedes.

"Let's make it clear once and for all, the rumours about Mattia are a fake news, put around to create instability in the team, an attempt to try to create problems where there are no problems and I do not want to comment on false rumours anymore," Arrivabene declared.

"During this season there have been many attempts at destabilization, sometimes with stories about the drivers, others about the technicians.

"My position? Ask the managing director [Louis] Camilleri."

Instead, the Ferrari boss believes it is more likely additions will be made to the team's setup even if the current wish to do is limited.

"No one has ever spoken of goodbyes, possibly we can talk about reinforcements," he said. "It takes time, we'll think about it next season. Today the team is there, and it's a good and compact team.

"If there are reinforcements they will arrive without any haste, I stress it, and if we need to have them.

"The line is that of stability, if there are additions [they] will not undermine the soundness of the existing group," he added.

"A team that works only needs reinforcements, not revolutions. Personally, I have never believed in revolutions, but in evolution."
