Appointments Galore As F1 Brands Change Personnel

Frederic Vasseur

Formula One team changed bosses in a flurry of post-season appointments on Tuesday, with Frederic Vasseur becoming Ferrari principal and Andreas Seidl moving swiftly from McLaren to replace him at Sauber.

Italian Andrea Stella, who started out as an engineer at Ferrari, was named as British-based McLaren's new team principal.

Tail-enders Williams, who announced on Monday that Jost Capito was stepping aside as boss, are also searching for a new leader.

The rare merry-go-round, in a sport once known for the longevity of bosses at teams they owned or founded, kicked off in November with Ferrari announcing Mattia Binotto's resignation.

His replacement was revealed on Tuesday in a statement confirming widespread speculation that Frenchman Vasseur was headed for Maranello from Switzerland, where Sauber run the Alfa Romeo team.

That was followed by McLaren announcing the departure with immediate effect of Seidl, who worked previously at Sauber and was also a former boss of Porsche's endurance team.

Stellantis brand Alfa Romeo is ending its sponsorship of Sauber at the end of 2023, with the team becoming the factory Audi entry from 2026.
