Enrico Cardile, Ferrari's technical director in terms of chassis and aerodynamics, will not be present at the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix. The Italian had a motorbike accident, according to the Italian branch of Motorsport.com. He suffered no serious injuries as a result.

Ferrari upgrades at Imola

This weekend, the evolved SF-24 will make its debut at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari. A big package has been brought, with the Scuderia looking to make things tougher for Red Bull Racing after McLaren.

It would therefore have made sense for Cardile to be present at the unveiling of the upgrades on the Ferrari. Beforehand, the technical director was expected to attend the press conference for team bosses and team members on Friday, but Enrico Gualtieri ended up attending on behalf of Ferrari.

So this is because he is said to have had an accident with his engine. Despite the damage not being too bad, he did have to stay at home, as he would still feel the accident physically. When Cardile will be back is not yet known.
