Ferrari Poaches Key Mercedes Members Ahead of 2025 F1 Season

Ferrari has made significant strides in bolstering its team for the upcoming 2025 Formula 1 season by recruiting two high-profile members from rival Mercedes. Jerome d’Ambrosio and Loic Serra will be joining the Scuderia, marking a notable shift in F1 personnel dynamics.

Jerome d’Ambrosio Joins Ferrari: Ferrari confirmed on Monday that Jerome d’Ambrosio will take on the role of Deputy Team Principal and Head of the Scuderia Ferrari Driver Academy. The 38-year-old Belgian, a former F1 driver who competed in the 2011 and 2012 seasons, will be leaving his position as head of Mercedes’ young driver program to join Ferrari in October.

Loic Serra’s New Role: In another strategic move, Ferrari has appointed Loic Serra as Head of Chassis Performance Engineering. Serra, who has been with Mercedes since 2013 and served as their performance director since 2018, will also start his new role in October.

Additional Changes: Ferrari has also announced that Bryan Bozzi will replace Xavi Marcos as race engineer for Charles Leclerc, further strengthening their technical team.

Haas Lawsuit Against Former Team Principal

Haas is embroiled in a legal battle with its former team principal, Guenther Steiner, following his departure from the team. Steiner, who led Haas from 2016 to 2023, is being sued by the team over issues related to non-payment of commissions and unauthorized use of trademarks.

Details of the Lawsuit: The conflict arose after Steiner, known for his appearances on Netflix’s “Drive to Survive,” took Haas to court over unpaid commissions he claims he is owed. In retaliation, Haas has sued Steiner and the publishing company Ten Speed Press, alleging unauthorized use of Haas Automation trademarks for personal gain in Steiner’s book, “Surviving to Drive,” published in 2023.

The legal dispute underscores the often tumultuous relationships within F1 teams and the complexities of managing high-stakes motorsport operations.
