Ferrari make key change to strategy team in reshuffle

There have been changes in the Ferrari strategy department, with Ravin Jain set to lead the squad's operations trackside while Inaki Rueda moves to a factory position.

Ferrari strategy chief Inaki Rueda has moved to a factory role from a trackside position as part of a reshuffle. Rueda – who joined the team as Head of Race Strategy at the end of 2014 before becoming Head of Race Strategy and Sporting in 2021 – will support the sporting elements of the team from their base, reports Autosport . Ravin Jain will take over in the trackside role, having previously acted as a race strategy engineer at the Scuderia throughout his six-year career in F1 so far. It comes after new team boss Frederic Vasseur spoke of making "small adjustments" following Ferrari's much-publicised strategy errors in 2022. The Frenchman has also assigned specific duties to himself and the squad's Racing Director, Laurent Mekies. Mekies will look after operations aspects from the opening race in Bahrain onwards, while Vasseur will focus on the drivers, sponsors and media.
