Ferrari signs Spaniard as lead engineer



Formula One World Championship
As two Spaniards depart Ferrari, another arrives.

Tester Pedro de la Rosa and, of course, number 1 driver Fernando Alonso have departed the fabled Maranello marque amid its radical restructuring.

But at least one Spaniard has arrived in their wake, Italian and Spanish sources have revealed.

His name is Toni Cuquerella, who worked in F1 for Super Aguri, BMW and – most recently – HRT.

Since the Hispania collapse, he has worked for BMW in the German touring car series DTM.

But now, he is returning to F1 with the sport’s most famous team, reportedly in an overseeing role for Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen’s race engineers Ricciardi Adami and Dave Greenwood respectively.

Interestingly, Greenwood has arrived freshly from ailing backmarker Marussia, where he was chief engineer, to work with Raikkonen. (GMM)
