Formula One driver Charles Leclerc on Friday predicted a “smooth” transfer of power at Ferrari after team principal Mattia Binotto stepped down after another disappointing season.

Binotto, 53, had been in the hot-seat since 2019 but Ferrari failed to mount a serious and sustained challenge to Red Bull after a promising start to this year’s campaign.

“It will probably take a bit of time for the team principal to get comfortable with the system, and with Ferrari, because obviously it’s a huge team,” said Leclerc, who finished second in the championship behind Max Verstappen.

“But if it’s done the right way, I don’t think that we will suffer on the track.

“So I’m pretty sure it will be a smooth transition,” added the 25-year-old who was speaking at the sport’s end of season prize-giving gala in Bologna.
