Kimi Raikkonen's race engineer David Greenwood has left Ferrari ahead of the 2018 Formula 1 season.

David Greenwood worked his way up the F1 engineering ladder, starting out as a mechanic with the BAR Honda team, and gradually moving up to become Chief Engineer at Marussia. He helped the team score their first championship point but sadly Marussia folded at the end of 2014. Greenwood moved to Ferrari and was assigned as Race Engineer to Kimi Räikkönen.

He has left the team for personal reasons and will return to the UK, where it is understood he will take up a role on Manor's World Endurance Championship project.

Ferrari has yet to make a decision on who will replace Greenwood, but one is expected in the coming weeks.

As part of the minor reshuffle, its former pitwall-based operations chief Diego Ioverno will no longer travel to races and will instead work from the factory.
