Stefano Domenicali has become the former team principal of the Ferrari F1 team after announcing his resignation today. He has left with immediate effect, saying that the team needs a reshuffle to try and improve their performance after a disappointing start to the 2014 season.

A statement issued by Domenicali continues: “As the boss, I take responsibility, as I have always done, for our current situation. This decision has been taken with the aim of doing something to shake things up and for the good of this group of people that I feel very close to.”

Team boss Luca di Montezemolo thanked Stefano for his work, and welcomed his replacement Marco Mattiacci, saying: “I also want to wish all the best to Marco, whom I know to be a highly regarded manager and who knows the company well. He has accepted this challenge with enthusiasm.”

Marco comes from the management of Ferrari North America and steps in ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix this weekend.
