Luca Baldisserri (born 11 December 1962) is an Italian engineer, formerly the chief track engineer for the Ferrari Formula One team, then the chief of the Ferrari Driver Academy. He was born in Bologna.
Following Ross Brawn's decision to take a year's sabbatical leave at the end of 2006, Baldisserri was chosen to temporarily replace Ross Brawn in the hope that he would return to Ferrari from his sabbatical in 2007. This however was not the case, and when it was announced that Ross Brawn would be joining the Honda F1 team as team principal, Baldisserri's position as chief track engineer became permanent.
After Baldisseri's performance as strategist during the 2008 and 2009 years, Ferrari's management has decided to remove Baldisseri from his strategist's role in the organisation. Since the 2009 Chinese Grand Prix, Baldisseri has moved to a different role, in Ferrari's factory. From 2010 to 2015, he was the Ferrari Driver Academy Manager. He left Ferrari altogether in 2015.
In 2015, Baldisseri left the Ferrari Driver Academy and joined the Stroll family to mentor Lance Stroll.
In 2018, he became Stroll's race engineer alongside James Urwin at Williams F1.
