Damon Hill’s words.

Damon Hill, during the F1 Nation podcast, returned to talk about former Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto: “I always thought that was not the right role for him. However, we are talking about a technician with enormous talent. I would bring him back, if I were in Ferrari, and say, ‘Okay, you can handle the whole technical side.’ Obviously he is a very brilliant engineer. But I don’t know if this solution is politically viable.”

“To be team principal, you have to be well-versed in discussions about money, strategies and marketing in Formula 1. And probably for Binotto they were not the main topics, they didn’t excite him. But I was surprised that they couldn’t get Binotto and Vasseur together, because Fred I think is just the kind of person who can understand racing.”

Ferrari was founded in 1947 by Enzo Ferrari, in Maranello, in the province of Modena. It is involved in the Formula One World Championship, where it holds the record for the number of world Constructors’ titles won (16), and in the FIA Sport Prototypes and Endurance World Championships. The official symbol is that of the prancing horse on a yellow background, the color representing the city of Modena.
