Ferrari sporting director Laurent Mekies will be the new Scuderia AlphaTauri team principal from next year. It will be a return to Faenza for the Frenchman who spent most of his early career with the team when he was Minardi.
The move means Ferrari will lose another top player.
The team also announced that former FIA member Peter Bayer will become the team’s chief executive officer.
Franz Tost is retiring.
