Ferrari dismiss team boss Mattia Binotto replacement rumours

Amid growing speculation that Ferrari F1 team might be brewing off an option to replace their team boss Mattia Binotto following three unfortunate DNFs of Ferrari F1 driver Charles Leclerc due to engine failure earlier in the year, which eventually had shattered the Monacan’s title hope, the Ferrari F1 team had ruled out media reports that Sauber’s Vasseur might replace Binotto by end-2022.

Meanwhile, Ferrari F1 team had issued a statement on Tuesday saying, “In relation to speculation in certain media regarding Scuderia Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto's position, Ferrari states that these rumours are totally without foundation”.

As beforementioned, Ferrari’s title hope had obliviated earlier in the season follow mechanical inconsistency, while rumours were loudening that Leclerc had had a conversation over a sweeping overhaul of the Ferrari’s engineering team.

Ferrari own four events this season, while Leclerc had been met with three unfortunate DNFs while comfortably leading the grid earlier in the season due to engine failures.

Although, drivers’ championship title is much-cheered among the crowds, FIA pays out the season’s prizemoney based on the performance of constructors’ championship title.
