Tost defends aggressive Mekies announcement

Franz Tost has defended Red Bull-owned Alpha Tauri’s “aggressive” decision to announce Laurent Mekies’ impending departure from Ferrari. Ferrari boss Frederic Vasseur said Alpha Tauri releasing a statement about Mekies replacing long-time team principal Tost sometime next year was “aggressive” because the terms of his release have yet to be finalised. “They were a bit aggressive with the press release,” Vasseur said at Baku.
