Veteran Formula 1 engineer Gary Anderson believes that James Allison is the ideal man to join Ferrari.

Amid speculation that Lotus’ now-departed technical director will shortly re-surface at Maranello, team boss Stefano Domenicali insisted at the Nurburgring: “I will not make a comment”.

Anderson, however – now a technical expert for the BBC as well as the German-language Speed Week – thinks that signing Briton Allison, 45, is right for Ferrari.

“That would be a brilliant move,” Anderson, the former designer of Formula 1 cars for Jordan and Jaguar, told Speed Week.

“I’ve always said that Ferrari is lacking not resources, but a man of vision. And James is such a man.” (GMM)
