Rory Byrne: The man behind all of Michael Schumacher’s title-winning cars at Benetton and Ferrari
Rory Bryne is one of the greatest car designers in F1 history, seeing his cars dominate the late 90s and early 2000s in Formula 1.
Ferrari yesterday announced a restructuring of their technical department, after a woeful start to the 2020 season. This after Team Principal Mattia Binotto had come under tremendous pressure to change fortunes.
Announcing the change, Binotto put up an official statement, highlighting the revamped structure. “A change of direction was needed to define clear lines of responsibility and working processes, and at the same time, reaffirming the company’s faith in its technical talent pool.”

“The department run by Enrico Cardile will be able to count on the experience of Rory Byrne and David Sanchez.”
As a result, the newly-created Performance Development department will be led by Enrico Cardile. It will see Rory Bryne play a more prominent role in Ferrari’s car development. Notably, Bryne has been a major influence in Ferrari’s dominance in the initial years of this millennia.
