As reported by Leo Turrini on his blog, Stefano Domenicali - team principalof the Ferrari until this morning - he would resign. In its place - writes journalist - should arrive Marco Mattiacci.
Stefano Domenicali would have resigned from the role of team principal of Ferrari and the company itself. At the base there would be an enormous amount of criticism received following a disappointing start to the season of the Maranello marque.
" He left the company in which he entered as a boy in 1991 and in which he path without recommendations, the entire career "- Writes Leo Turrini on his blog and he adds - " I understand that the successor is Mr. Mattiacci . Origins of Umbria, in his forties. I met him when he directed the Asia-Pacific division of the Ferrari. Currently he was in command of the Division America . He is a man highly respected in Maranello and even more so in Turin. It has no racing experience. If you make it. Worth a thousand wishes. He will need it . "
Marco Mattiacci, 42 , started working very young in Jaguar in 1989 at the time of entry into the Ford company. Ferrari came in 1999 at age 27, in Sales America and the Middle East. In 2001 he was in charge of Maserati North America, and from 2002 to 2006 he held the position of vice president, "Sales & Marketing" for the North America. From 2006 to 2010 he held the position of president and CEO of Ferrari Asia Pacific , the same position held from 2010 to the present day for the North American division .
" The Ferrari is the best company in the world "- told Mattiacci WOBI in an interview last year - "People love the Ferrari , there is an incredible passion everywhere . " Now he could be the person in charge to revive the image of the team on the largest international stage.
I just regret for the way the story seems to have closed Domenicali , a serious professionaland an honest person who has " contributed in no small way to the triumphs of the golden age , "in the words of Leo Turrini. Under his management, however, is arrived only a constructors' title and lined up unfortunate many seasons punctuated by second places and titles faded at the last moment. Too little, especially in relation to the investments made and the huge expectations of the fans.
The confirmation of the resignation of Stefano Domenicali and the arrival of Marco Mattiacci in placeis expected soon .
