Ferrari announce Fred Vasseur as their new team boss, replacing Mattia Binotto… with the departing Alfa Romeo chief to be reunited with star driver Charles Leclerc

Fred Vasseur will take over as Ferrari team principal after leaving his role with Alfa Romeo. The 54-year-old Frenchman will join the Italian team on January 9 as a replacement for Mattia Binotto. Binotto will be succeeded by Vasseur, who in six seasons with Alfa Romeo led the team from bottom of the constructors’ championship to sixth this last year – their highest finish since 2012. Vasseur said: ‘I am truly delighted and honoured to take over the leadership of Scuderia Ferrari as team principal. He has now been appointed and it will be a reunion for Vasseur and Leclerc, having first worked together back in 2016.
