Ferrari confirms James Allison as Technical Director

Ferrari on Monday confirmed reports that James Allison will join them in September in the role of technical director.

The Maranello team, for whom Allison earlier worked during the Schumacher era, bought out the remainder of Allison’s contract with Lotus to allow him to join them before his current contract ran out.

“It is believed Allison could get to work (at Ferrari] in the early autumn”, working alongside Pat Fry and Nicolas Tombazis, the Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat had reported.

In a media statement on Monday, Ferrari announced that Allison will join them as chassis technical director on 1 September, which means Pat Fry moves into a new position within in the team as director of engineering.
