Alessandro Aluni Bravi has become the new chief executive of Sauber, which competes in Formula 1 under the Alfa Romo brand, according to Motorsport.
In his new position, Bravi will take over the duties of Pascal Picci, who left the company in a scandal at the end of last year. At the same time, Picci was the full-fledged general director of the Sauber group, while Frederick Wasser was the head of the Alfa Romeo team.
It is believed that it was the conflict with Wasser, who was supported by the shareholders, that led to Picci’s departure. Now it is Vasser who is formally the general director of the entire Sauber group, and Bravi will report directly to him.
