49-year-old Enrico Cardile could join Aston Martin before the end of the year, depending on the length of his gardening leave.

Formu1a.uno has reported Cardile will depart for Aston Martin later this year, with Ferrari filling the void left as Loic Serra is reportedly set to take over Cardile’s duties in charge of the development of the Ferrari chassis.

Serra will apparently oversee the development of the 2025 Ferrari, and lead the team’s efforts into the new 2026 regulations, according to the report, with Serra already confirmed as being Ferrari-bound to begin work at Maranello on October 1st.

As Ferrari confirmed last month, Serra is set to oversee trackside engineering, aero development, and operations, as well as vehicle performance.

This could also open up the rumored move of Adrian Newey to Ferrari as their new Technical Director, or similar title.
