Diego Tondi is promoted by Ferrari to take over for David Sanchez.

There has all the earmarks of being a great deal of disturbance at the Scuderia Ferrari, directed by Frederic Vasseur, after only one race in 2023. The principal of the team was able to refute most of the rumors, but aerodynamicist David Sanchez’s departure appears inevitable.

Vasseur was able to clear his throat after just one race and disprove most of the rumors about his squad. For instance, it is asserted that the team manager has sufficient mobility within the group to finish his work, that Charles Leclerc and John Elkann’s conversations were merely scheduled meetings, and that team members will always come and go.

David Sanchez is one individual who might be leaving, and that thought is turning out to be more sound given that it appears as though there is possibly a substitution. Diego Tondi has been promoted to head of automobile concept, replacing Sanchez, according to Italian media.

Ferrari, which has not yet published or verified anything, claims that Tondi’s holding two positions does not appear to be a strong strategy. Tondi is also the team’s head of aerodynamics.

The French engineer David Sanchez announced his resignation today on LinkedIn, stating that it had been determined for some time that the Italian media had released the search for additional This was the genesis of all the rumors.

There appears to be an effort to undermine the administration of Fred Vasseur. The French team principal is acquiring the skills necessary to lead a system unlike any other. After the engines were turned off over the weekend, it appears that even Piero Ferrari, who is typically reserved when it comes to taking a position, warmed up to what he read.

Fred Vasseur responds to rumors that Charles Leclerc has requested a meeting with the chairman of Ferrari.

The Scuderia wishes to remain silent at this time. The second race, which will take place this coming weekend at the Jeddah Corniche track in Saudi Arabia, is the priority over any controversy. A completely different circuit from Bahrain, where aerodynamic efficiency will be more important than downforce, which should help the SF-23’s characteristics.

For the following round of the season, Laurent Mekies, who was designated to leave after David Sanchez, is expected to regularly take his place on the pit wall. Although it is true that the Frenchman is looking for a new position, he may still remain with the Italian team if he fulfills the terms of his contract, which binds him to Ferrari until 2024.

According to reports in Italy, Charles Leclerc had requested and been granted a meeting with Ferrari chairman John Elkann ahead of the upcoming Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. According to reports, the Monégasque driver was worried about Ferrari’s slow start to the season and wanted assurance that he could improve on his P2 finish in last year’s Drivers’ Championship.

However, Vasseur provided some insight into the Ferrari meetings in an interview with Auto Hebdo, stating that one with Elkann’s drivers and Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna took place following winter testing.
