Marciello: Arrivabene forced me out of Ferrari

Raffaele Marciello says he was forced out of the Ferrari stable by team principal Maurizio Arrivabene following the pair failed to get on.

When asked about the Ferrari split, he explained that his relationship with team boss Maurizio Arrivabene had broken down.

“I didn’t really have confidence from Maurizio,” Marciello told Motorsport.com last week.

“We didn’t work well together, so he decided that I was not the right person to be in Ferrari. I think he just didn’t like me.

“He didn’t want to let me be in Ferrari, and he pushed me out.”

The Italian also confirmed no longer work with the Ferrari-powered F1 team Sauber.

With the death of Jules Bianchi, the 21-year-old Italian became the clear cream of Ferrari’s driver development ‘academy’.

Last year, Marciello split his time between GP2 – where he finished the championship in seventh place – and testing for Ferrari and Sauber.

He even appeared on several Friday mornings for the latter Swiss team, but Italy’s Autosprint reports that he has now suddenly split up with Ferrari.

Marciello will stay in GP2 this year — “If you do a good season in GP2, maybe some doors can open – so I will try my best this year to get in Formula One next year.”
