The FIA pays tribute to one of the most influential designers and engineers in Formula 1 history – Mauro Forghieri – who has passed away at the age of 87.
“The condolences of the FIA community are today with the family and friends of Mauro Forghieri,” said FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem. “He was a pioneer of motor sport engineering who had a remarkable impact on the history of Formula 1 and sports car racing, designing some of the most iconic cars and forging much of the success that is at the heart of Ferrari’s legacy.”
Forghieri was instrumental in guiding Ferrari to many victories in Formula 1 between 1962 and 1984 – working with some of the greatest drivers of all time including John Surtees, Niki Lauda, and Jody Scheckter – to deliver 54 Grand Prix wins, four World Drivers’ Championships and seven Constructors’ Championships. He was also involved with many of Ferrari’s iconic GT cars and P series prototypes that raced to endurance success at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and around the world.
The Italian engineer left Ferrari for Lamborghini in 1987, and had since remained connected with the motor sport world through ventures such as the Oral Engineering Group.
