Aston Martin has confirmed the signing of Enrico Cardile as its Chief Technical Officer from the 2025 F1 season onward.

A day after Ferrari confirmed the departure of its chassis head Cardile, Aston Martin has expectedly announced the signing of the Italian veteran as its Chief Technical Officer. The new role further strengthens the belief of the Anglo-Brit outfit.

Although Cardile has moved out of Ferrari with immediate effect, he will still have to serve a gardening leave to join Aston Martin only in 2025. The Italian is one of the several signings – most recently Andy Cowell – that Lawrence Stroll has made in the space of few years.

“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,” said Stroll. “I am thrilled that we continue to attract world-class talent to our team.

“Enrico shares my motivation to be successful in F1 and will have all the resources available to him to realise that ambition. Together with Andy Cowell joining as Group CEO in October and our existing leaders we are creating a formidable team.”

Team principal Mike Krack noted: “I am delighted to welcome Enrico to Aston Martin Aramco. Enrico has nearly 20 years of experience at Ferrari and will offer a fresh perspective to our technical strategy. This is a key appointment for the team as we build towards the new 2026 regulations – an important next step on our journey.”

And finally Cardile added: 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.”
