Tost refuses to confirm Ascanelli departure

Scuderia Toro Rosso technical director Giorgio Ascanelli appears to have left the Italian team, although official confirmation has yet to emerge.

A sheepish team principal Franz Tost said today: “I can only tell you that Giorgio Ascanelli is on holiday and there’s confidentiality between the two parties. That’s all that I can say to this.”

Sources suggest Ascanelli was in dispute with Tost about the level of resources devoted to car development.

The former Ferrari and McLaren engineer was always highly rated by STR drivers, including Sebastian Vettel, who drove for the team in 2007 and 2008.

Although he has been linked with a return to Ferrari the team has denied such a possibility, but given his McLaren history it’s not impossible that he could take a job with a UK-based team.

  1. Toxoplasmosis @ STR. I mean how on Earth STR eagles are supposed to grow RBR wings when their wings are chopped right there in the beginning. Bet Al G. Schwari and Boo EMI are laughing out loud at dis unfortunate situation. The car, the STR car, looks really nice but results have been quite poor, not that it matters to the ricci rich guys of Toro Rojo.
