Ferrari Loses Security Man to Lotus
Rosato has made a name out for himself during his stay at Ferrari as one of the most reliable security men in the F1 paddock. Radio Canada today reported that the Italian has accepted the offer of former working colleague Dany Bahar to become the new vice-president of corporate affairs for Lotus.
Bahar used to work within the Ferrari organization – former senior veep for brand management – before being appointed as new CEO of Lotus in early September. Only weeks after becoming active in his new role at the Malaysian sports car company, Bahar already started to make some visible changes in terms of staff.
Besides the naming of the aforementioned security man in the vice-president of corporate affairs position, Bahar also appointed a new motorsport director for the company. Coincidental or not, that position was also given to an official previously working for Ferrari (as well as Maserati and Fiat), namely Claudio Berro.
Berro's appointment has another meaning, however, as it comes less than two months after Lotus F1 Team were granted the 13th entry to the 2010 Formula One Championship by the FIA. Therefore, the Italian official is expected to become quite active within Lotus' F1 operations, which has already finalized the wind tunnel model of their 2010 challenger.
