Andrew Alessi, current Redbull aerodynamicist has been lured to join Aston Martin as head of technical operations.
Redbull has lost two very esteemed aerodynamicists to Aston Martin. The end of June saw Dan Fallows, Redbull’s head of aerodynamics announcing his departure to Aston Martin. Alessi is now following in his path.
Aston Martin has made mighty signings in the last month. Earlier in June, they also announced the signing of Alfa Romeo’s Chief Designer, Luca Furbatto as their Engineering Director.
Otmar Szafnauer has shared his delight on the contracts signed in the month of June: “Two weeks ago we announced the hiring of Luca Furbatto as our new Engineering Director, who will start work for us in due course. Last week Dan Fallows’ forthcoming arrival as our new Technical Director was also made public.
“Today, Andrew Alessi is added to the impressive list of our senior technical/engineering hirings, as head of technical operations. Ours is a great team, and it always has been. This year it became Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team, a great brand name supported by a fantastic roster of brilliant new sponsor-partners.”
Alessi has been a part of the Redbull family since 2008 and is now excited to join the Silverstone-based team.
“I am delighted to be joining Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 team as head of technical operations,” Alessi said.
“Like everyone in and around Formula 1, I have seen and been impressed by the evident ambition of the team I am joining, led as it is now by Lawrence Stroll, and I am very much looking forward to working with Otmar Szafnauer as well as the very capable technical and engineering-focused members of the senior management team.”
“Now is a fantastic time to be joining a team that is growing fast. I am ready to get stuck in straight away so as to contribute to the process of making the significant aerodynamic and operational improvements that we need in order to win consistently in the future.”
These signings simply reflect the strength of the team in green, as some of F1’s best aerodynamicists and engineers have shown their confidence in their 2022 project.
