Former Ferrari driver Rene Arnou feels Mattia Binotto ought to have been fired a very long time in the past.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Arnoux stated that the sort of perspective proven by the previous Ferrari boss was not one thing he’d wish to see in a workforce principal.

Binotto had taken over from Maurizio Arrivabene in 2019. Regardless that the 2022 F1 season was the most effective for the Italian squad shortly, the variety of strategic mishandlings price the Italian his job.

Arnoux didn’t mince phrases, saying:

“I didn’t like seeing a really aggressive Ferrari let the Championship slip away as a result of we began nicely. It’s true that there was no reliability, however we misplaced some grands prix virtually as if we had carried out it on objective. The errors he (Binotto) made for me in System 1 are unforgivable. I’ve by no means been on Binotto’s aspect. Somebody who says ‘It is going to be higher subsequent 12 months, it is going to be higher subsequent 12 months’, doesn’t deserve that place.’

Arnoux added that he would have fired Binotto a very long time in the past. He stated:

“I might have fired him a number of years in the past. I’ve stated it a number of instances. Habits like his is insupportable when you find yourself on the head of essentially the most lovely workforce on the earth.”

Speaking about one of many largest shortcomings in choosing Binotto, Arnoux stated that combining the technical director and workforce principal roles was an unwise determination. He stated:

“Bringing the 2 roles collectively was a mistake. In at this time’s hyper-specialised System 1 you may’t do the whole lot. Vasseur has to search out the proper folks. You don’t must know easy methods to make a gearbox or an engine. (Jean) Todt didn’t care.”

Arnoux added:

“You have to have the proper, competent folks in the proper place. After which handle them. When you might have Ross Brawn as technical director after which Rory Byrne and Paolo Martinelli you simply must make them work nicely. As Todt did and as Vasseur should do.”

Ferrari completed second within the 2022 constructor championship, behind winners Purple Bull.

Arnoux uncertain of Ferrari’s future beneath Frederic Vasseur

Arnoux isn’t solely certain of how Ferrari would fare beneath Frederic Vasseur. He did, nevertheless, admit that managing Alfa Romeo in Switzerland could be a very totally different problem to managing Ferrari.

He stated:

“I don’t permit myself to say sure or no, as a result of I do know him little or no. I met him, I spoke to him. However not sufficient to say whether or not it’s proper or not. We have now seen the outcomes he has achieved with a mid-range workforce like Alfa. However managing Alfa in Switzerland and managing Ferrari are very various things.”

Arnoux added:

“He definitely has the mandatory experience, and I hope he can pull the workforce collectively when it comes to know-how and technique. With out which you’ll’t win the World Championship. Final 12 months the chassis and the engine have been there; the reliability wasn’t. However above all, we now have made a mistake many, many, many instances the technique, and in that subject, there’s a good cleansing to be carried out. I’d say throw all of it away. And discover somebody who’s succesful.”

The 2023 F1 season goes to be essential for the Italian workforce to find out the path Ferrari take within the coming years.
