Piero Ferrari, son of the eponymous founder of the car brand, and Mattia Binotto, director of the Formula 1 team, have paid tribute to Mauro Forghieri, who died on Wednesday.
Technical director and father of the Ferrari team’s chassis and engines for nearly 30 years, Mauro Forghieri was one of the key players in the Italian brand’s success in competition.
Piero Ferrari, son of the brand’s founder, Enzo Ferrari, salutes the memory of the creator of the 312, 330P4, 312T and 126C2 models. “Forghieri was dynamic and passionate about everything he did. He was sanguine and I remember that in many of those interminable meetings at Gestione Sportiva, which started in the evening and went on into the night, I was the mediator between him and my father. I know that my father appreciated his tireless dedication and knew that any mistake was only an attempt to do better and look to the future. We have lost a part of our history, a man who gave a lot to Ferrari and the racing world in general.”
