Bernie Ecclestone questions the leadership of Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto . The billionaire who has been at the helm of Formula 1 for years thinks Ferrari is better off with a different type of leader.
Ecclestone thinks that, considering his background, Binotto does not suit his role. "He is a former engineer, that says a lot", the former Formula 1 director told Speedweek. "But for this job you really need to be able to understand people and show leadership at the crucial moments. Your team has no use for a 'maybe' or a 'we are still discussing it'."
Briatore better suited according to Ecclestone
