Chief Engineer, Toro Rosso
Nationality : French
Place of Birth : Tours, France

When you compete in races known as “Grand Prix,” it’s useful to have someone in your team who understands what those two words mean, even if this is not our French chief engineer’s main role. Laurent Mekies is well qualified for the job, with a Masters degree in Automotive Engineering obtained in Paris, which included a final year at the UK’s Loughborough University, something of a hotbed for race engineers in Britain. Mekies’s entire working life has been spent trackside, first with a Formula 3 team, before eventually tasting F1 with the Arrows team in 2001. A year later he joined Minardi as a race engineer and has been in Faenza ever since, taking on the role of chief engineer when Scuderia Toro Rosso was born.
