Cardile confirmed as chief technical officer at Aston Martin

Aston Martin has announced the signing of Enrico Cardile as chief technical officer, following his departure from Ferrari.

Cardile was Ferrari’s technical director (chassis area) but the team issued a statement on Monday that he had handed in his notice and would be leaving the company after nearly 20 years. That news came following reports in Italy that Cardile would be moving to Aston Martin, and the switch has now been confirmed with the Italian taking up the role of chief technical officer in 2025.

“I’m looking forward to joining Aston Martin Aramco,” Cardile said. “The ambition and desire are clear and it is a unique opportunity to be part of that journey. This is a personal and professional challenge and I look forward to working with the team to bring success to this iconic brand.”


Confirmation of the signing of Cardile comes less than a week after Aston Martin announced Andy Cowell’s future arrival as Group CEO, with executive chairman Lawrence Stroll saying the pair add significant strength to the team’s technical leadership.

“I would like to welcome Enrico to Aston Martin Aramco as we look to reinforce the technical leadership team ahead of significant regulation changes in 2026,” Stroll said. “I am thrilled that we continue to attract world-class talent to our team.

“Enrico shares my motivation to be successful in F1 and will have all the resources available to him to realize that ambition. Together with Andy Cowell joining as Group CEO in October and our existing leaders we are creating a formidable team.”

Team principal Mike Krack says the signings are central to the work Aston Martin will be doing for the new technical regulations that will be introduced in 2026, as both will have joined in time to work on the next generation of car.

“I am delighted to welcome Enrico to Aston Martin Aramco,” Krack added. “Enrico has nearly 20 years of experience at Ferrari and will offer a fresh perspective to our technical strategy. This is a key appointment for the team as we build towards the new 2026 regulations – an important next step on our journey.”
