Because Gil de Ferran is above as a man of confidence of Zak Brown, also in charge of the program of the Indy 500, although from now on the Brazilian will be able to return to his supervisory functions and gradually abandon the leadership in favor of the new fichaje.

The German engineer, of 43 years, comes to dominate the WEC with Porsche although he already passed through the F1 in BMW Sauber.

Among his views he speaks of self-criticism and open-mindedness: " You are competing against the best of this sport and you must create a spirit and a mentality within the team that leads anyone forward, day after day. That means being self-critical, questioning yourself every day, being open-minded and open to change, seeking permanent improvements and accepting risks and roosters. Learning from mistakes and respecting competitors ".
