Ferrari denies Arrivabene death threat reports

Ferrari has denied speculation its F1 team boss threatened to kill a cameraman in the Abu Dhabi pitlane on Friday.

Darren Heath, a well-known and veteran F1 photographer, tweeted that Maurizio Arrivabene had turned to a cameraman for the British broadcaster Sky and raged: “Do that again and I’ll cut your f*cking head off!”

Briton Heath has since deleted the tweet, replacing it with: “Learnt a lesson today on how tweets sent when emotions are high can be damaging.”

But Germany’s Bild newspaper is also now reporting the story, explaining that the British cameraman had been filming the pit garage of the Italian marque.

“Yes, there was an incident,” a Ferrari spokesman confirmed. “The cameraman bumped a mechanic. Maurizio intervened but he only gave him a warning.”
