ROME, Italy - Stefano Domenicali, until recently Ferrari F1's team principal, might rebuild his professional career in the world of Italian basketball.

Italian media reports claim the 48-year-old, who started work at Maranello in his twenties, has been contacted in recent days by Giovanni Petrucci, president of the Italian Basketball Federation since 2013.


Domenicali stepped down from his seventh season as Ferrari team principal between the 2014 Bahrain and Chinese GP's due to the Italian team's poor race results. He has been replaced by Marco Mattiacci.

Fernando Alonso scored Ferrari's first podium visit of the new V6 turbo/hybrid era in China and dedicated it to the departed chief.

Alonso said: "Probably all the parts from now until July or August 2014 will come from the team working under Stefano so I hope we can give him some great Sundays at home in front of the TV."
