Chassis engineering head Simone Resta is moving from Ferrari to the Haas Formula One team in a strengthening of technical ties after the U.S.-owned team signed Mick Schumacher for next season.

Schumacher, son of seven times world champion and Ferrari great Michael, is a Ferrari Academy driver and Haas use the Italian's manufacturer's engines.

Ferrari said in a statement that Resta was highly-rated and would have an important role in strengthening Haas's technical department.

Haas are ninth of the 10 teams and have scored just three points in 15 races this season.

Their other driver for 2021 is Russian Nikita Mazepin in an all-new rookie lineup.
