BAKU, AZERBAIJAN - APRIL 28: Ferrari Team Principal Frederic Vasseur looks on prior to practice

Fred Vasseur is a no-nonsense kind of guy who deftly switches between ruthlessness and dry humour. It’s the way he was when he ran teams in junior series. It’s the way he was when he was at the helm of Renault and then Sauber in F1.
