Maranello, Italy:

Ross Brown has stepped down as technical director of Ferrari's Formula One team. The 51-year-old Brown, who helped Ferrari win six constructors' and five drivers' championships after joining from Benetton in 1996, "has decided to turn his attention to his personal life," Ferrari said on Thursday in a statement. The move, which was widely anticipated, is the latest in a series of reshuffles at Ferrari following the retirement of seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher. Former Ferrari industrial director Mario Almondo was named as Brown's successor. Former team director Jean Todt was appointed chief executive on Wednesday, and will act as interim managing director while the reorganization takes place, Ferrari said. Also, Stefano Domenicali replaced Paolo Martinelli as sporting director, the latter taking on "an important role within the FIAT Group," which owns 56 percent of Ferrari. (AP)
