Report links Boullier with Ferrari move
Amid what the Italian press is calling a 'crisis', the rumours about a change at the top at Ferrari are resurfacing again.
Several Italian sources are hinting at a rift between president Sergio Marchionne and team boss Maurizio Arrivabene, with new technical boss Mattia Binotto a favourite to step in.
And the Spanish sports daily Marca said McLaren's Eric Boullier is another name that has been linked with Ferrari in recent weeks.
Flavio Briatore, the well-known former Renault supremo, told Radio Capital's 'TG Zero' programme this week that Marchionne's F1 inexperience may be showing.
"Marchionne is investing a lot, but formula one is an ugly beast and if you don't know it well, it gores you," said the Italian.
"Every year we think of the next one for Ferrari. It is not a lack of money: no, they have everything," Briatore insisted.
"Rather, Ferrari has the same men it had two years ago, but when someone goes he is not replaced. So I think the results are a logical consequence," he added.
