He also contributed to a team that won eight “World Constructors’ Championships” and six “World Drivers’ Championships,” the highest awards in Formula One.

Zoox said Lanzone’s expertise would help the company “execute on our ambition to deliver autonomous mobility, without compromise.”

This is the second notable executive announcement by Zoox following the hiring of former top U.S. safety regulator Mark Rosekind, who joined the auto start-up as its chief safety innovation officer last month.
