ROME (Reuters) – Italian media reports citing the former chief executive of Vodafone Vittorio Colao as one of the candidates for the top job at Ferrari are groundless, a source close to Colao said on Friday.

Louis Camilleri retired with immediate effect as CEO of Ferrari late on Thursday, after being in the role for nearly two and a half years.
