Ahead of the race weekend in Sochi, news broke that Stefano Domenicali, the former Ferrari team leader and now head of Lamborghini, will replace Chase Carey as Formula 1 CEO.
The championship teams are aware of the upcoming changes, and it seems that everyone is satisfied with Domenicali’s candidacy.
“Stefano is a good man, a real gentleman, we had frequent contact when he was the head of the Ferrari team, he is well versed in both business and sports, so his appointment is great news! – said Christian Horner, Team Leader Red Bull Racing. – I’m sure everyone will be happy with his return to Formula 1. He is very well suited for such a role and will cope with this work.
As for the fact that his past is connected with Ferrari, then if you finally fall into paranoia, then we can say that Formula 1 will be headed by Jean Todt, Ross Brown and Stefano, who at one time led Scuderia. No, I think that Domenicali has a lot of experience, and when we competed with his team, he always acted very fairly.
He is one of those who can be considered the good guys of Formula 1. Of course, in recent years he has worked in the business world, having shown himself well as the head of Lamborghini, and I believe that his return will benefit our sport. “
A similar opinion was expressed by the head of the McLaren team Andreas Seidl: “Of course, this is a good choice, and we will gladly support his candidacy. I appreciate him very highly, and not only because of the experience he received in various positions. I also think he is a very good person with a passion for motorsport. “
