Stefano Domenicali: Ex-Ferrari boss to head Formula 1

Former Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali is to become the new boss of Formula 1 next year. The Italian, who left Ferrari early in 2014, is the chief executive of sports car manufacturer Lamborghini. The 55-year-old’s appointment has not been announced by F1, but has been confirmed to the BBC by senior sources. Domenicali himself did not immediately respond to a request to comment. Domenicali’s appointment means the sport’s commercial rights holder and governing body will both be led by former Ferrari team bosses. Domenicali took over at Ferrari from Jean Todt, the current FIA president, at the end of 2007. Domenicali is a highly respected and well-liked figure in F1, a charismatic and genial character with a strong track record in management. Domenicali then took up a senior management role at Audi, before being appointed chief executive of Lamborghini, which is also part of the VW Audi Group.
