Currently reading: Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali set to leave firm to run F1
Report suggests former Ferrari F1 team boss will leave Lamborghini to take on role overseeing the sport

Lamborghini boss Stefano Domenicali is set to leave the firm to become the new CEO of Formula 1, according to a report by F1 website RaceFans.

Domenicali, who ran the Ferrari F1 team prior to joining Lamborghini, is mooted to be taking over from current F1 supremo Chase Carey, who has run the sport since January 2017 on behalf of Liberty Media. 

The appointment of Domenicali would result in a strong presence of ex-Ferrari personnel at the head of the sport; F1’s managing director is ex-Ferrari head of design Ross Brawn, while FIA President Jean Todt used to be the Scuderia's sporting director.

Lamborghini declined to comment on Domenicali’s potential departure, while F1 has yet to respond for a request to comment.

Domenicali

This is rank stupidity.

It immediately brings the sport into disrepute. Simply you cannot have former team leaders (particularly Ferrari), running F1.

Jean Todt should never have been appointed FIA President....his impartiality cannot be guaranteed. Ari Vatanen should have been appointed so that  there was no favouritism.

And now Domenicali......no wonder petrolheads around the world laugh at F1 and say it stands for Ferrari 1st!

Man, that's not a long tenure

Man, that's not a long tenure with Lamborghini - 4 years. Didn't stay long enough to oversee development of any major models start-to-finish. I guess it's too good an offer to pass up though.
