Ferrari thanks Stefano Domenicali: On receiving Stefano Domenicali’s resignation, Ferrari thanks him for the dedication he brought to his service to the company, in positions of ever increasing responsibility over the past 23 years. It offers Stefano Domenicali its most sincere best wishes for the future.

Autosprint correspondent Alberto Antonini explained that Domenicali, realising his exit was necessary given Ferrari’s 2014 predicament, will not travel to China for this weekend’s grand prix.

“He seems to have willingly accepted the situation,” said the correspondent.

“It was a personal decision, taken after much thought at the end of last week, to offer to Maranello and the fans a way to relieve the negative pressure and criticism,” added Antonini.

President Luca di Montezemolo thanks Stefano Domenicali: In accepting Stefano Domenicali’s resignation, Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo commented: “I thank Stefano Domenicali, not only for his constant dedication and effort, but also for the great sense of responsibility he has shown, even today, in always putting the interests of Ferrari above all else. I hold Domenicali in esteem and I have watched him grow professionally over the twenty three years we have worked together, I now wish him every success for the future. I also want to wish all the best to Marco Mattiacci, whom I know to be a highly regarded manager and who knows the company well. He has accepted this challenge with enthusiasm.”
