Ferrari are continuing to make staff changes behind the scenes ahead of the new 2019 season.
The sad passing of Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne has triggered a series of personnel changes, the biggest of which has seen Maurizio Arrivabene replaced by Mattia Binotto as team principal and Charles Leclerc chosen ahead of Kimi Raikkonen as part of the Scuderia’s 2019 driver line-up.
The latest departure now sees, Alberto Antonini, the head of Ferrari’s F1 press office leave the team and replaced by Silvia Hoffer Frangipane, formerly of McLaren.
One of the main criticisms of Arrivabene’s reign was how closed off Ferrari were from the media, perhaps this latest staff change will see a change in the relationship the Scuderia has with the press.
This is something ex-driver turned pundit, David Coulthard, is hoping will happen.
He commented: “I’m looking forward to working with Silvia to deliver for the Ferrari fans and the wider F1 fans.”
