Did anyone post this article about Ferrari explaining slow pitstops this year? (I got it from motorsport, but autosport or any other will probably have it too)
"It's true that the number of stops over 3.5 seconds is too high by the Scuderia's past standards, but the vast majority of times that there has been a less than optimal stop, it has been down to a specific problem linked to the wheel nut," said Diego Ioverno, Ferrari's vehicle operation engineer.

"The thread is not strong enough and so the nut has stripped several times. It's a reliability problem we are working hard on to fix for next year.

"When the guys feel, even unconsciously, that they are using a component that is more at risk, with a margin of error for engaging the wheel-gun that is much smaller, that has a negative effect on the whole procedure...."
Makes a lot of sense I guess. This season seems to have a lot of factors pulling them down tough!
Williams had something similar a few years back, when they changed their wheelnuts they went from routinely terrible pitstops to the fastest pitstopping team.

Camilleri out, huh? That's interesting. I wonder what the full story there is. Binotto is sick too and not going to be in Abu Dhabi.

High stress. He made the best decision. Enjoy the rest of his life and millions with his family.

I predict Bino gets a "promotion"...one so important he will just not have the time to be bothered with this silly racing stuff.

I don’t follow your logic. Ferrari company ceo retires —> chairman as interim CEO —> how does this follow that “top brass” is taking over?

Do you know why Elkann is chairman? It's sort of like if the Queen decided to step in for Boris. Sort of.

Of course. But at the same time if he wanted to meddle in the race team he would already have done so before even with Camilleri as CEO. A change in CEO does not imply changes in the team

He may well be of greater value to Ferrari at a much higher level than he is currently employed. God knows he isn't doing much with the F1 team.

Camilleri was always going to be the wrong person in the wrong place, so this is hopefully for the best--for everyone.

I suspect he will be the Friday sim driver to run tandem programs/burn midnight oil if/when the team cannot find an appropriate setup. I remember Wehrlein and Kvyat used to be on overnight sim duty whenever they couldn't solve an issue on Friday FP
