Former Ferrari team boss Domenicali set to become F1 CEO!

Former Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenciali, currently the CEO of Lamborghini, is reportedly set to replace Chase Carey at the helm of Formula 1.

Website RaceFans.net, citing "a source with knowledge of the situation", reported that Domenicali will take over the role of chief executive of Formula 1 before the start of the 2021 season.

The 55-year-old current boss of luxury automobile manufacturer Lamborghini started his professional career at Maranello in 1991, fresh from the University of Bologna with a degree in Business Administration.

Domenicali worked in several departments at Ferrari but was eventually promoted to the role of sporting director of the Scuderia in 2002.

Five years later, the Italian replaced Jean Todt as the Scuderia's director, adding on a role as team principal a year later.

Domenicali's tenure at the helm of Ferrari - during which he delivered a Constructors' title to the team in 2008 - extended until the spring of 2014 when he resigned from the Italian outfit and was subsequently hired by Audi.

Domenicali was also appointed at the time as head of the FIA's Single Seater Commission.

As Formula 1's future top executive, the Italian will obviously find himself in a familiar environment, working alongside former Ferrari tech boss Ross Brawn and in close proximity with FIA president Jean Todt.

On Tuesday evening, neither Domenical nor a representative of Formula 1 had confirmed the news but it has apparently been communicated to team bosses ahead of this week's Russian Grand Prix at Sochi.

Jordan tells Wolff to 'get the hell out' of Mercedes!

Former team boss and pundit extraordinaire Eddie Jordan says Toto Wolff should "get the hell out" of Mercedes, because the German team's fortunes are at their peak.

Wolff's management contract with Mercedes runs out at the end of this year, but the Austrian has repeatedly said that he intends on remaining with the manufacturer in F1, although in a less burdensome role.

Jordan recently claimed that Mercedes was negotiating an outright sale of its F1 outfit to UK chemical giant and sponsor INEOS. But the story was subsequently rubbished by Wolff.

Nevertheless, Jordan believes the time is ripe for Wolff - who holds a 30% stake in the Mercedes team - to cash in his chips.

"The only thing that I was really sure about is that INEOS will buy the team," reiterated Jordan, speaking to Ziggo Sport.

"And for sure in that package, with the people of Mercedes and particularly the new Chief Executive, it's a well-known fact that Ola [Kallenius - Mercedes boss], who is the new CEO and the chairman of the group, he's had some issues with Toto in the past.

"And, you know, Toto, to be very honest, he is right up there with the likes of the Frank Williamses, the Ron Dennises and all of these guys, you know.

"He's been sensational. So it's time that he moved on himself."

The dominant Black Arrows outfit is on course to win its seventh consecutive Constructors' title this year, with Hamilton also racing towards a seventh crown.

For Jordan, Mercedes' fortunes are as good as they will ever be, leaving Wolff with little more to achieve.

"I'm sure he's getting tired of the situation," added Jordan. "He's won all of these championships and he's created a myth around Lewis Hamilton and indeed the team.

"In life, you've got to remember that there is a very good time to get out and there's a very bad time to get out. And a very good time is now for Toto.

"If it was me, and I was his advisor, I would say: 'Get the hell out of there. Please, Toto. Take the money off the table, it will never get as good as this in the future'."
