Chris Dyer’s ‘redefined’ role at Ferrari has finally been confirmed, with the Australian race engineer consigned to a factory-based role following an internal reshuffle in the team’s technical departments.
Dyer was pinpointed as the decision-maker in bringing Fernando Alonso into the pits early in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to cover the similarly-pitting Mark Webber, a decision that many believe was the sole reason why Alonso failed to win the 2010 Drivers’ Championship title.
Finland’s Turun Sanomat is claiming Dyer – formerly the race engineer to Michael Schumacher and Kimi Räikkönen – will be stationed at Maranello in a production-specific role.
The report also claims that Schumacher has apparently expressed an interest in reuniting with Dyer, a move that we would wholeheartedly support after this rather knee-jerk reaction from Maranello.
