At the end of June, Laurent Mekis left the FIA, where he served as director of security and deputy director of racing.

In September, a French specialist began work at Ferrari, and in Abu Dhabi, team leader Maurizio Arrivabene confirmed that Mekis had received the post of sports director.

“Laurent has all the qualities that a sports director needs,” said Arrivabene. “It is for this reason that we hired him, and next year he will take on these responsibilities.”

The last sports director of Ferrari was Massimo Rivola, who left his post in 2016.
