F1 teams kick off 2022 with new bosses

Two Formula 1 teams are kicking off 2022 with major top management changes. Aston Martin, insisting that it has “a little time to explore options” before naming the successor, admits that Szafnauer will “undoubtedly” take on another challenge elsewhere. Alpine is expected to lose Davide Brivio back to MotoGP, with Marcin Budkowski also stepping away from the team – and tipped for a top FIA job. As for Aston Martin, most insiders expect team newcomer Martin Whitmarsh – best known for his role as McLaren’s former boss – to succeed Szafnauer. Ralf Schumacher thinks Szafnauer’s departure could upset Sebastian Vettel, who was close to the Romanian-American when he signed for Aston Martin.
