Mattiacci to rebuild career in US

Marco Mattiacci is set to rebuild his career in America.

Just a year ago, the 44-year-old was the highly respected chief executive of Ferrari's North America unit when he was unexpectedly called up to replace axed team boss Stefano Domenicali.

As well as causing a stir with his first paddock appearance wearing dark sunglasses in China, Mattiacci might now be remembered for reaching the technical deal with 2016 entrant Haas as well as signing up Sebastian Vettel.

Mattiacci, however, has also been blamed for souring Ferrari's relationship with Fernando Alonso, but he did oversee the rise to prominence of the team's respected new technical boss James Allison.

But a report in the Spanish newspaper El Pais says there remains "no trace" of Mattiacci at the resurgent Ferrari in 2015.

He has also departed the Fiat Chrysler group altogether, as the newspaper said Mattiaci was spotted in Milan a few days ago.

He is reportedly now preparing to return to New York, "where he has found work in a company linked to entertainment" that is not connected to the motoring sector.
