Ferrari: Frederic Vasseur to join, McLaren’s Andreas Seidl to replace him

Vasseur will be charged with turning the Italian team into one capable of winning the world championship. German Seidl, 46, has been McLaren’s team principal since 2019. Vasseur, who will join Ferrari on 9 January, said he was “delighted and honoured” to take on the leadership of Ferrari. Vasseur’s appointment marks a clean break from Ferrari’s strategy of choosing team principals over the last decade and a half. He said: “Ferrari is a very different team to any other teams. Vasseur’s key responsibility will be to ensure Ferrari’s race operations are improved so the team can avoid the sort of strategic errors that rocked Leclerc’s 2022 season.
