Briatore lashes out: ‘This Ferrari is not Ferrari’


Former Benetton and Renault team principal Flavio Briatore has hit hard at Ferrari. They don’t have a clear leader, according to the flamboyant Italian. “This Ferrari is not a Ferrari,” he says Betway.

Ferrari has had four team bosses since the beginning of 2014. Stefano Domenicali stepped down from the Scuderia and was succeeded by Marco Mattiacci. He was fired just seven months later and succeeded by Maurizio Arrivabene. Arrivabene was then given longer to reorganize Ferrari and was the team principal for four years. He was also allowed to leave early last year and Mattia Binotto has been ultimately responsible ever since.

Flavio Briatore, who was team principal at Benetton and Renault in the past, knows what is going on at Ferrari. “They don’t have a clear leader. The noses are not in the same direction, ”says the Italian in conversation with Betway.

“There are people who always walk the difficult path and that’s what Ferrari is doing at the moment. Ferrari is important and has a big name. Every driver would want to drive at Ferrari for two or three years. But then you look at the results of recent years and the problems that they have known for years. They have had good drivers, but won nothing in all those years. Then something is clearly wrong ”, says Briatore.
