Aston Martin have appointed ex-Alfa Romeo Chief Designer Luca Furbatto to be their new Engineering Director, with long-term tech boss Andrew Green promoted to Chief Technical Officer in a major reshuffle for the Silverstone-based squad.

Green has been Technical Director for the team – previously known as Force India, then Racing Point – since 2010, but following Furbatto’s recruitment he will now be the team’s CTO, to take a “global perspective on the company’s mid to long-term technical strategy”, according to Team Principal Otmar Szafnauer.

Furbatto spent ten years at McLaren before spells with Manor and Toro Rosso, before becoming Chief Designer at Sauber in 2017 and remaining there when the team became Alfa Romeo Racing. Aston Martin say his signing is one of a “number of significant new hires”, and Furbatto will be working for the team ahead of the 2022 season.

“The recruitment of Luca Furbatto adds an exceptionally talented engineer to our technical team,” said Green. “He brings a vast amount of experience with him built up from more than two decades in the sport spent at several leading Formula 1 teams. This is the first of many key appointments we are making in line with our ambition to establish Aston Martin at the front of the grid.”
