Ferrari clears up confusion over F1 technical director
Following the departure of team principal Mattia Binotto, Ferrari had been without a formal technical director on the chassis side. It had been expected that Enrico Cardile, who has been head of chassis since early 2021, would step up into the technical director role. However, this move was never officially announced and Cardile continued to be referred to as head of chassis. Ahead of the Italian Grand Prix, team principal Fred Vasseur clarified that Cardile is indeed the technical director of the chassis side, while Enrico Gualtieri is the technical director of the engine side. Ferrari is currently recruiting more senior technical staff to further strengthen the team’s progress. Vasseur emphasized the importance of continuous improvement and said that Ferrari is recruiting because they still have room within the cost cap and it is crucial for their development.
