F1 2019, news: Ferrari shake up, Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, bush driving, race calendar

Published

on

Ferrari have replaced Maurizio Arrivabene with Mattia Binotto as their team principal.

The major move just days into the New Year has been taken little over a month before pre-season testing begins and comes in the wake of the team’s title defeats to Mercedes last year.

A Ferrari statement read: “The decision was taken together with the company’s top management after lengthy discussions related to Maurizio’s long-term personal interests as well as those of the team itself.

“Ferrari would like to thank Maurizio for his valuable contribution to the team’s increasing competitiveness over the past few years, and wish him the best for his future endeavours. With immediate effect, Mattia Binotto will take over as Scuderia Ferrari’s team principal. All technical areas will continue to report directly to Mattia.”

Binotto has served as Ferrari’s technical director since 2016 but rumours of tension between himself and Arrivabene were rife last year as the team’s title challenge faded for the second consecutive season.

Published

Garry Rogers Motorsport has stunned the world of Supercars by dumping veteran and former champion Garth Tander for the 2019 season, all but certainly ending his full-time driving career.

The 41-year-old only recently spoke of how he was planning to scale back on his extra-curricular racing outside of Supercars so he can focus solely on the series this year.

However, if he is to do that then it will no longer be with GRM after they announced Richie Stanaway as his replacement after he was in turn dropped by Tickford Racing in December, despite having a year still left of his contract.
