Italy’s Stefano Domenicali has resigned as team principal of Ferrari after their poor start to the Formula One season.

The 48-year-old, who joined the team in 1991, will be replaced by Marco Mattiacci with Ferrari currently sitting fifth in the manufacturers’ rankings, 78 points behind Mercedes.

Spain’s Fernando Alonso has claimed two fourth places and a ninth in his three races so far this season, while team-mate Kimi Raikkonen has come seventh, 12th and 10th for the Italian team.

Mattiacci, the president of Ferrari North America, will take over for the next Grand Prix, which gets underway in China on April 20.
