GP Week : Issue 133
F1 NEWS >> ONE of the surprise stories to hit the F1 paddock in Monza this weekend was the sudden departure of Mark Gallagher, formerly Cosworth General Manager F1 Business Unit. Gallagher joined Cosworth in 2009 when the engine supplier was preparing itself for its Formula One return, but maintained his involvement with GP3 team Status. Speaking to Autosport, Gallagher explained his departure. “It has been a great privilege to run Cosworth’s F1 business for over two years and to work with such talented people,” he said. “ The company produces world class products, and that applies particularly to the CA F1 engine, which is truly competitive. “Next year will be my 30th in professional motorsport and I have a number of ambitions for the future, hence my decision to move on. This will include helping my team, Status Grand Prix, and my partners Teddy Yip and David Kennedy to achieve their objectives in GP3 and beyond. “Meantime it has been very rewarding to play my part in Cosworth’s return to F1 as an engine supplier, and I wish the company, its management and staff every success for the future.” Gallagher’s replacement at Cosworth is Kim Spearman, who has been with the company for 24 years. Mark Gallagher leaves Cosworth FOLLOWING the departure of Simone Perillo, former in-house lawyer for the English Premier League Oliver Weingarten has been named secretary general of the Formula One Teams’ Association. “I’m delighted to welcome Oliver to FOTA, where his experience of Premier League football, together with his commercial, legal and public policy expertise, will be extremely valuable to all member teams,” FOTA chairman Martin Whitmarsh said in a statement. “ The next few years will be a crucial time for the sport of Formula 1 - and, working in close collaboration with the FIA and FOM, FOTA will play a very important role in shaping the future of our great sport. Oliver will play a significant part in that process. “Finally, I want to pay tribute to Simone, Oliver’s predecessor as secretary general, who is leaving FOTA in order to pursue an exciting career in a very different field. Simone’s wise counsel, political savvy and phenomenal work-rate have impressed Formula 1 stakeholders across a wide range of disciplines, and on behalf of all of FOTA I wish him well for the future.” The Italian Grand Prix marked Perillo’s last weekend with FOTA; the Italian – who has been with the organisation since its inception in 2008 – is said to be moving on to pursue political interests in his home country. Perillo is known to be close to Ferrari chief Luca di Montezemolo, who is also rumoured to be considering a political career.
