2 Comments

There have been weeks of speculation surrounding his future, but now it appears Ferrari’s head of Engine and Electrics, Luca Marmorini, has left the team ahead of the second half of the season.

Ferrari’s power unit – along with its chassis – have been some subject of scrutiny this year and the team seems set for a technical shakeup.

This marks the second management shakeup for the team this season, after Marco Mattiacci replaced Stefano Domenicali as team principal earlier this year.

Plans for the upgraded pit and paddock complex at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Canada, have been unveiled ahead of their completion in time for the 2019 Formula 1 race.

The Canadian Grand Prix signed a new long-term F1 contract running to 2029 earlier this year, with a commitment to improving the outdated pit facilities at the circuit, built in 1988.

In a press conference earlier this week, further details and artist renderings were revealed for the CA$48 million project by the Société Parc Jean‑Drapeau.

A new glass structure will become the main pit complex, covering three levels to accommodate the teams, media and hospitality guests.

The construction work will commence at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in July 2018 – one month after next year’s Canadian Grand Prix – and be completed two months prior to the 2019 race.
