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 Chris Dyer might be looking for outfits that could treat him with more loyalty than Ferrari... 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.
