Ferrari Chairman Sergio Marchione officially announced that the former chief mechanic of the team Lorenzo Sassi left in the Mercedes.
Italian engineer left the engine-building division of the Scuderia back in the summer, but got the offer to stay in Maranello and go to the Department of development of hybrid engines for road cars. However, for a traditional Christmas dinner with journalists Marchione confirmed that Sassi no longer works for Ferrari, and one of the reasons for his removal from the team was incorrect operation of engine test rig.
