New Sporting Director for Minardi

MINARDI have announced that Frederic Dhainaut will become their Sporting Director with immediate effect. He returns to the team after a short absence.

The announcement comes 12 days after the surprise departure of Cesare Fiorio from the team. The former General Director of Ferrari, and Sporting Director of both Ligier and Prost was a big asset to the team, and left after disputing their development plans.

Dhainaut will be at the Belgian Grand Prix, and will take the post through to the end of the season.
