Vasseur not ruling out Ferrari move: Everything is possible

Frederic Vasseur didn't rule out a move to Ferrari but has played down the chances of him taking a role at Ferrari as suggestions that Mattia Binotto should share some responsibility swirl, with the Frenchman praising the work the Ferrari team principal is doing. 

Binotto took over the role as team principal during the off-season, as he replaced Maurizio Arrivabene as the head of the Scuderia. However, the change doesn't seem to have brought about new fortunes for the team, with the constructors 140 points behind Mercedes after just eight races of the season. 

Frederic Vasseur has been CEO AND managing director at Alfa Romeo racing since 2017 back when the team were named Sauber. He had previously held the role of team principal at Renault.

Despite not ruling it out, Vasseur played down the chances of him taking up a role at Ferrari to help relieve some of the strain from Binotto and instead highlighted the work the Italian has done.

"Everything is possible," Vasseur told TF1.

"I started in Formula Renault, on the grid here at Paul Ricard, by being 15th or 20th. So, anything is possible.

"I'm focused on what we're doing today because that is what's important.

"I think Mattia is doing a good job, and we'll see later about the rest."
