Ferrari’s former chief aerodynamicist, John Iley, has joined up with rival team, McLaren.

Having left the Maranello squad less than 6 months ago, he will be replaced at the Scuderia by Marc de Luca.

"We can confirm that John Iley has joined Vodafone McLaren Mercedes as Head of Aerodynamics," a McLaren spokesman confirmed.

"John will oversee the efficient organisation of the entire aero department. Doug McKiernan continues in his role as Chief Aerodynamicist."

Will this improve McLaren’s fortunes heading into the 2010 season???
