Ferrari confirmed that they are going to restructure their sporting division. The sporting director Stefano Domenicali will become director of the Gestione Sportiva, a role that had been held temporarily by CEO Jean Todt. Domenicali will take up his new position from January 1, 2008.
The news follows Honda’s announcement that Ferrari’s former technical director Ross Brawn, who had been on a years’ sabbatical, is to join the Japanese squad as team principal.
In other adjustments at Ferrari, technical director Mario Almondo will become operations director for the Italian squad. Aldo Costa, who had been responsible for the team’s chassis department, will take up Almondo’s previous role, while Gilles Simon was named engine director.
Further details concerning the Ferrari reshuffle will be confirmed before the end of the year.
