Ferrari makes a change
Ferrari Mission has shuffled its deckchairs "to render it more effective and assure a more holistic emphasis on performance development". This will involve "a chain of command that is more focused and simplified and provides the heads of each department the necessary powers to achieve their objectives". This means that there is a new Performance Development department, headed up by Enrico Cardile. The other departments remain unchanged with Enrico Gualtieri in charge of the Power Unit, Laurent Mekies as Sporting Director and in charge of trackside activities, while Simone Resta will continue to lead the Chassis Engineering department.
“We have said it several times, but it’s worth repeating," said Mattia Binotto. "We have started to lay the foundations of a process which should lead to a new and enduring winning cycle. It will take some time and we will suffer setbacks like the one we are experiencing right now in terms of results and performance. However, we must react to these shortcomings with strength and determination to get back to being at the very top of this sport as soon as possible. This is what we all want and what our fans all over the world expect of us.”
