There would be something pretty lovely about Lewis linking back up with Fred at Ferrari. He was responsible for creating the potency of the young sensation who shocked the establishment 20 years ago.

Frederic Vasseur career
Vasseur started out his career in racing back in 1996, when he founded his own Formula 3 team called ASM. With David Saelens in the car, the team won the 1998 French Formula 3 championship. The team then won the Formula 3 Euroseries championships with Jamie Green, Lewis Hamilton, Paul di Resta, and Romain Grosjean back-to-back from 2004 to 2007. Following his stint there, Vasseur partnered up with Nicholas Todt and co-founded the ART racing team in 2004. The team saw drivers like Lewis Hamilton (2006) and Nico Rosberg (2005) win GP2 titles before eventually graduating to F1.
Later in 2013, he obtained an FIA contract to construct the 40 chassis for the inaugural Formula E series for his newly formed venture, Spark Racing Technology. Since then, the company has continued to keep this contract with the FIA. Vasseur then entered Formula 1 in 2016 as the team principal for Renault. However, following disagreements with the managing director, Cyril Abiteboul, he left the team and joined Sauber on July 12, 2017 as their new team principal.
Last year, on December 13, 2022, Scuderia Ferrari announced the departure of their former team principal, Mattia Binotto. Following this, the team subsequently appointed Vasseur as his replacement. Notably, Vasseur is the fourth non-Italian and the second Frenchman to head the team. He achieved his first win as team principal when Carlos Sainz won the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix.
