–by Mark Cipolloni–

Realizing Red Bull has out-engineered them for years, Ferrari is rumored to now trying to poach two prominent members of the Red Bull engineering staff.

As we reported here, La Gazzetta dello Sport also reports that Ferrari’s sporting director Laurent Mekies is keen to leave the Scuderia.

La Gazzetta dello Sport also claims that Ferrari’s executive race manager Jonathan Giacobazzi and long-time familiar face Gino Rosato have departed – together with strategy boss Inaki Rueda.

Corriere della Sera claims that more departures may be imminent.

“Several contracts will expire soon, including that of Enrico Cardile, who acts as technical director,” the newspaper said.

“No one is in a safe place.”

If these reports are true, new Ferrari boss, Fred Vasseur has plenty of vacancies to fill, and what better place to try and poach them but from Red Bull.
