In the last few hours the rumor began to spread that Chase carey, current CEO of Liberty Media and of the Formula 1, already has a replacement for the 2021 season. Liberty Media has owned the rights to the category since 2016, after the sale of Bernie ecclestone. Although it has not yet been made official, the signature would not take long to arrive.
Who would assume the role of Carey, would be Stefano Domenicali. The Italian was head of the team Ferrari during the period 2008-2014. In his first year he won the constructors’ title with the team. He also lived through the entire period of Fernando Alonso in the team. According to various media, the current Formula 1 teams are already aware of this.
Chase Carey came to Formula 1 in September 2016, after Liberty Media bought the rights to the category. One of Carey’s goals was to expand the category to different countries around the world. Holland or Vietnam were added to the calendar.
Along with Domenicali will be Jean Todt, current president of the International Automobile Federation (FIA), Y Ross Brawn, Sporting Director of Formula 1. All of them have the peculiarity that they shared a team within the Ferrari team. The Italian was working as CEO of the legendary brand Lamborghini.
Domenicali left his place at Ferrari in 2014, after his relationship with the CEO of the Maranello structure, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, after he wanted to fire him for treating him as “incompetent and useless”, after losing championships with Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa. This is why, after six years, Domenicali can claim again, and make Formula 1, a better category.
