Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team has announced a significant addition to its technical leadership, appointing Enrico Cardile as F1 Chief Technical Officer. This move, set to take effect in 2025, further solidifies the team’s goal to achieving race wins, as well as strengthening their senior technical group.

Cardile, formerly the Technical Director of Chassis and Aerodynamics at Ferrari, brings nearly two decades of Formula One experience to Aston Martin. His appointment comes at a crucial time, as the team prepares for the regulation changes slated for 2026.

Lawrence Stroll, Executive Chairman of Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team, expressed his enthusiasm for the new addition.

“I would like to welcome Enrico to Aston Martin Aramco as we look to reinforce the technical leadership team ahead of significant regulation changes in 2026. I am thrilled that we continue to attract world-class talent to our team.”

Stroll emphasised that Cardile will have access to all necessary resources to pursue the team’s ambitious goals. This appointment, coupled with Andy Cowell joining as Group CEO in October, shows Aston Martin’s commitment to building a formidable team.

Team Principal Mike Krack highlighted the importance of Cardile’s role, particularly in light of the upcoming 2026 regulations. “Enrico has nearly 20 years of experience at Ferrari and will offer a fresh perspective to our technical strategy,” Krack stated.

“This is a key appointment for the team as we build towards the new 2026 regulations – an important next step on our journey.”

Cardile himself expressed excitement about the new opportunity, saying, “I’m looking forward to joining Aston Martin Aramco.”

“The ambition and desire are clear, and it is a unique opportunity to be part of that journey. This is a personal and professional challenge, and I look forward to working with the team to bring success to this iconic brand.”
