Ferrari has announced further changes to the structure of its technical department ahead of the 2021 F1 season.
Ferrari’s technical department has been arranged into four sections, the managers of which each report to team principal Mattia Binotto. They are Enrico Cardile (chassis department), Enrico Gualtieri (power unit), Laurent Mekies (racing division) and Gianmaria Fulgenzi (supply chain management).
The chassis department has also been reorganised with the creation of a dedicated division for performance engineering, announced last July, headed up by Cardile. Race track engineering activity will be handled by the same department.
Also within the chassis department, David Sanchez will oversee the vehicle concept, Fabio Montecchi is to handle project engineering and vehicle operations will be run by Diego Ioverno.
Ferrari said in a statement the latest changes are being made “with the aim of being more effective and efficient in the pursuit of maximum performance”.
The former head of the chassis engineering department, Simone Resta, has been placed in charge of a new, separate division overseeing the development of parts for customer team Haas.
