Arrivabene sacking positive for Vettel, says Rosberg
Sebastian Vettel will benefit from Ferrari’s decision to replace Maurizio Arrivabene with new team principal Mattia Binotto, according to Nico Rosberg who believes that the four-time world champion did not receive enough support from the Scuderia management in the 2018 F1 season.
Last year was a tumultuous one for Ferrari as their championship assault fell away after the death of popular CEO, Sergio Marchionne.
Vettel was guilty of some high-profile mistakes during races, most notably in Germany, France, Italy, and Azerbaijan, but Rosberg thinks his compatriot wasn’t given backing by the team thereafter.
"The change at the top of the team will have a positive effect on Sebastian," he told Auto Bild.
"He lost the title in 2018 also because he lacked 100% support.
