Dany Bahar joins Ferrari?

The word on the street in Formula 1 circles is that Red Bull Racing's guiding hand Dany Bahar has departed the Austrian drinks company to take a top job at Ferrari. Bahar has acted as Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz's right hand man in recent years but it seems that he has obviously impressed someone down Maranello way and will be taking on a major role in the Italian car company.

The news has yet to be confirmed but it may be that Ross Brawn's plans to return to Italy and replace Jean Todt have gone awry and that the rumours of Brawn doing a deal at McLaren may be more realistic than they appeared to be.
