There were rumors about this for several days, but now Lamborghini has officially confirmed: Stefano Domenicali is leaving the post of CEO. The Italian will become the new Formula 1 leader.

Domenicali, 55, began his Ferrari career in the 90s. In 2008, he joined the Formula 1 brand team as the top manager of the sports department and replaced the very successful team leader Jean Todt. Under Domenicali, Ferrari only managed to achieve success at the beginning of its era as team leader, but after that the situation quickly deteriorated. When he was fired from his position as team leader in 2014 after a difficult period for Ferrari, he joined Audi. After all, Volkswagen, Lamborghini’s parent company, put him in charge of Lamborghini in 2016.

The Imola-born CEO returns to Formula 1 after a six-year absence and replaces Chase Carey, the current CEO of Formula One Management. Thus, Domenicali takes over the reins of Formula 1, where he will be accompanied by Jean Todt as President of the FIA ​​and Ross Brown as Sporting Director of F1.
