Ferrari changes strategy

Ferrari slightly alters its sporting structure on circuits. The British engineer Ravin Jain will be the new head of strategy and Iñaki Rueda will fulfill a new function in Maranello from the remote garage. The Spanish engineer was since 2021 the sports and strategic head of Ferrari. Frédéric Vasseur, head of the team since January, has discreetly touched up one of the sections that seemed to be the team’s ‘weak point’ in 2022. To simplify strategic decision-making, Vasseur gives responsibility to Jain, who is trained in the house and already formed part of the wall Yes, Matteo Togninalli, head of track engineers, who was another of the men with weight in strategies in recent years, remains in the track team; and Laurent Mekies as sports director, a ‘number two’.

The face that has disappeared from the Ferrari garage, although it did not really belong to the organizational chart, is that of Gino Rosato. The Canadian, companion of all the Ferrari team leaders since the days of Jean Todt, and good friend to many pilots, he was one of the charismatic personalities of the paddock although its specific function was not defined.

Vasseur participated in the first press conference for team managers during the Bahrain tests and, although he did not speak directly about the changes, he did point out that working at Ferrari is not very different from working at other factories: “There are no big differences because the DNA of a racing team is always the same, improve and do a better job. Motivation and passion are sometimes more visible, but the plan is similar. When you are a competitor, you are in Italy or anywhere”.

Analysis of its pilots

About Carlos Sainz, who premiered the SF-23 this Thursday: “I was very close to working at Renault, but he left before; then I also tried but he did not want to go to Sauber. We haven’t been far. Also in the junior categories. We’ve known each other for many years and I’m very happy with the lineup we have.” He sees Leclerc “a little more mature” than when he last worked with him in 2019. “But at this point in the season everything is going perfect, we are all in love and we are all going to be world champions,” sums up the French leader. And he is right: this Ferrari, and its drivers, will be valued when the season ends.
