Technical department restructure a needed "change of direction" for Ferrari

Technical department restructure a needed "change of direction" for Ferrari

Ferrari has restructured its technical department in a bid to "render it more effective", the Scuderia reacting to a poor start to the 2020 Formula 1 campaign.

Ferrari sits fifth in the constructors standings, almost 100 points behind championship leaders Mercedes after just three races.

While key members of team personnel remain unchanged, the team has created a new Performance Development department, which will be led by Enrico Cardile, who is also the head of aerodynamics and vehicle project manager.

Team principal Mattia Binotto said: "As hinted at a few days ago, we are making changes to the technical side of the organisation so as to speed up the design and development on the car performance front.

"A change of direction was needed to define clear lines of responsibility and working processes, while reaffirming the company’s faith in its technical talent pool.

"The department run by Enrico Cardile will be able to count on the experience of Rory Byrne and established engineers such as David Sanchez. It will be the cornerstone of the car’s development."

Binotto maintains Ferrari have "nothing to envy" with regard to the personnel of their competitors, but accepts the shake-up was needed as the Scuderia aims "to lay the foundations of a process which should lead to a new and enduring winning cycle."

The Italian continued: "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."
