Ferrari announce another staff reshuffle for 2021

Ferrari are continuing to prepare for what they hope will be a brighter future by announcing more staff changes ahead of the 2021 season.

Back in July, Enrico Gualtieri, heading the power unit division, and sporting director Laurent Mekies are in charge of track activities.

And now, from January 1 2021, Simone Resta will step away from Ferrari’s chassis engineering department and move to customer team Haas to bolster their Formula 1 operation.

Taking his place will be Enrico Cardile, who is currently in charge of the aerodynamics department as vehicle project manager.

“The structure of Scuderia Ferrari evolves rapidly, staying ahead of the game,” Mattia Binotto said in a statement.

“As from 2021, with the introduction of new regulations, all of us will be facing new challenges that we must tackle with pragmatism and an open mind, which is in fact what we started to do with the organisational changes announced a few months ago.

“It is why we believe that our long-term relationship with Haas, dating back to when it first came into Formula 1, should be the basis for both parties to benefit from any possible synergy, consistent with what is defined in the FIA regulations.

“With that idea in mind, we are pleased to announce that the highly rated Simone Resta will move to strengthen the American team’s technical department as from the start of next year.

“This is a further step in the process of continuous evolution of the team’s technical department. Simone, whom we thank for his efforts to date, will have an important role within a team that has reaffirmed its long-term commitment to Formula 1.

“It has just strengthened an already very close relationship with the Scuderia by taking on Ferrari Driver Academy driver Mick Schumacher.

“Within the Scuderia, Enrico Cardile will now be tasked with coordinating the technical and human resources directly linked to performance development and the design of the car.”
