Fiorio confirmed at Forti
His deal is for the next eight races - until the French GP. This is significant as we understand that Fiorio was considering another offer before he took the Forti job and we believe that he is likely to return to Ligier in July to take over the running of the team from Tom Walkinshaw.
Rumors in Italy suggest that Fiorio's first move at Forti will be to hire former Ferrari engineer Enrique Scalabroni to head the technical department. Scalabroni has spent the last couple of years working on the abortive Ikuzawa International F1 operation.
