The new CEO of Caterham F1 is Frenchman Cyril Abiteboul, a 35-year-old who is seen as being one of young high flyers at Renault. Educated at the prestigious Lycée Carnot and Lycée Chaptal high schools in Paris, both well known for preparing the best and birghtest youngsters for France’s Grandes Ecoles. To put that into perspective it should be noted that the Lycée Carnot was where Jacques Chirac, the former French President, studied while his successor Nicolas Sarkozy attended the Lycée Chaptal. He went on to study at the Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Informatique Mathématiques Appliquées, graduating in 2001 when he joined Renault at Boulogne-Billancourt. At the start of 2007 he was appointed the Business Development Manager of Renault F1 Team, for a two-year period. He then returned to Renault mainstream until March 2010 when he was named executive director of Renault Sport F1 in the Spring of 2010 and was promoted to Deputy Managing Director a year ago.
