F1: Ferrari hired massively, not just Sebastian Vettel

From GMM

Four-time Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel may be joining Scuderia Ferrari at just the right moment.

Ferrari has had a tumultuous start to the new V6 era and has been busily shedding top staff all year including Stefano Domenicali, Luca Marmorini and president Luca di Montezemolo.

According to Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday, Vettel will have plenty of help.

The Italian newspaper said that since October, Ferrari has signed key personnel from Red Bull Racing, Mercedes AMG and McLaren.

"It is no coincidence that many engineers are following Vettel from Red Bull," said correspondent Luigi Perna, "and others have come from Mercedes, McLaren, Lotus, Williams and Renault.

"Within the racing division at Ferrari, there have been 60 new hirings," added Perna, revealing that one of them is Mercedes hybrid specialist Wolf Zimmermann.

And "Cedric Cornebois, an expert in combustion, also comes from Mercedes," Perna said.
