Ferrari has further strengthened its lineup by recruiting Loïc Serra and Jerome D'Ambrosio. Serra will assume the crucial position of head of chassis performance engineering within the team. Under the supervision of Enrico Cardile, the Scuderia's technical director for chassis and aerodynamics, Serra will oversee various aspects including track engineering, aero development, aero operations, and vehicle performance enhancement. 

On the other hand, D'Ambrosio steps into the role of Ferrari's new deputy team principal, with a direct reporting line to Fred Vasseur, the team boss. Both Serra and D'Ambrosio are slated to commence their roles at Ferrari on October 1, marking a significant addition to the team's expertise and leadership structure.

Is Ferrari setting up the stage for Adrina Newey? 

Amid all these taking ups Adrian Newey is also available in the market with some iconic value additions. Newey who has developed 13 championship-winning cars has decided to leave Red Bulls after 19 years. 

Speaking about it, Red Bull’s top Austrian F1 consultant Helmut Marko said that Newey is likely to join Ferrari. "It had been looming for some time,Marko told Osterreich newspaper. 

“There have been several occasions. That was one. With Newey, you have a figurehead. With him on board, young engineers were much easier to get because it was an honour for them to work with him. When there were problems, Newey was often the first to come up with the solution”, he further added.
