McLaren loses Tombazis

Ferrari has announced that it is restructuring its technical management and says that from March 1 Nicolas Tombazis will be chief designer, reporting to Aldo Costa who will he responsible for Design and development under Technical Director Ross Brawn. Rory Byrne will be a consultant to the Design and Development department but will also report to Brawn.

The news is yet another blow to McLaren which last week was busy denying that it was going to lose any more technical staff.
