Ferrari back in full swing at work on new facilities at Maranello



The Italian based F1 squad Ferrari unveiled that their all the departments are back in full swing at work on new facilities at their Maranello H.Q. that will be home to their Formula 1 team.

Ferrari said on their official website that, the start of the new Formula 1 season is now on the doorstep: in less than a month – on February 5 at the circuit of Jerez de la Frontera – the curtain will be raised on the first of just three test sessions scheduled for this year.

But before that the Ferrari calendar features other dates, starting with “Wrooom”, the traditional event that has been opening the Prancing Horse’s sporting season for more than 20 years in the stunning location of the Dolomites at Madonna di Campiglio: from January 14-18 Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa and Stefano Domenicali will be meeting up with representatives of the media from all over the world.

Following that, in the very first days of February, the new car will be officially unveiled at Maranello ahead of its debut on the track at Jerez immediately afterwards.

In the meantime, a project linked to the long-term future of the Scuderia has started to take shape: the new base. The first excavations have indeed begun of the foundations of the building that will house the offices of the management, engineers and administrative staff along with the working areas of the team.

The location, which is owned by Ferrari and currently used as a car park, is situated between the Cavallino restaurant and the building that is currently used by the Scuderia.

The project has been planned in accordance with guidelines inspired by the practicality, efficiency and style that characterise the Formula One programme. The aim is to create an environment that has been well thought through for the people who will work there.

This programme, which has benefited from the positive steps taken in favour of the employees and their families, has earned Ferrari the title “Best place to work in Europe” from the Financial Times.

In recent days the company has been working together with the district of Maranello to iron out all the administrative details: the procedure for the construction of the new building has been presented and details have been agreed that determine any amendments to this to keep in accordance with urban standards. Among them, new car parks will be built, substantially increasing the overall availability of places for cars to park in the area.
