Enrico Cardile had spent almost two decades with the iconic Italian outfit, and helped deliver Kimi Raikkonen his solitary F1 title.

Cardile also worked alongside some legends of the sport, including world champion drivers Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso.

His departure came shortly after Ferrari's disappointing display at the British Grand Prix, with their driving duo of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc once again struggling to challenge the top of the order.
