Rossi had publicly backed under-fire Domenicalli several times following many poor showings this season and expressed faith in him to improve. But today he released a statement saying "We would like to thank Enzo for all his work this season but unfortunately we have decided to terminate his contract with immediate effect following a string of results that have not come up to the team's expectation. Our test driver Manni Costello will race in the final 3 races of the season"
Domenicalli is now right up against it to secure a drive for next year and after driving in a relatively competitive car and failing to impress the odds would be long on him doing so. It is however a chance to impress for Manni Costello and with a seat still avaliable at Scuderia Rossi next season its a huge opportunity for the Italian.
