Mercedes F1 Recruits Ferrari Man

Mercedes AMG F1 continue to strengthen their Formula team by poaching Ferrari tyre specialist Mark Fainello reports Turun Sanomat. The 47 year old Italian follows former Ferrari key men Ross Brawn, Aldo Costa and Michael Schmuacher to Mercedes.

Fainello has a clause in his contract so must take 'gardening leave' for a few months before joining up with his old colleagues. Mercedes had recently signed former Ferrari technical director Aldo Costa and former Red Bull & HRT technical director Geoff Willis.

Update 11 January:  Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali  has denied Marco Fainello is joining Mercedes, "He remains in Ferrari as a person responsible for simulation programmes, in terms of the industrial part of the group," Domenicali said.
