Ferrari’s Costa victim of race team reshuffle

Ferrari technical director Aldo Costa is to lose his position as the Italian marque reshuffles its engineering department, it was reported today.

The Italian becomes the biggest scapegoat for the team’s failure to challenge the front of the grid so far this season, with team principal Stefano Domenicali enjoying what is likely to be a stay of execution.

Costa is set to “take on new responsibilities within the company”, Ferrari announced today, with ex-McLaren man Pat Fry thought to be taking over his immediate duties.

Luca Marmorini maintains his position at engine and electronics.
