Ferrari's long-serving engine boss Luca Marmorini has left the Maranello marque with immediate effect as part of an internal reshuffle.

Following the introduction of the new power unit this season, Ferrari have struggled in comparison to one of their key rivals, Mercedes.

That would appear to have resulted in Marmorini's exit and the appointment of Massia Binotto as chief operating office of the power unit department.

Binotto will report directly to technical director James Allison, and work closely with power unit chief designer Lorenzo Sassi.
