Ferrari, Mercedes deny Lowe switch rumours

Ferrari has now played down rumours linking Mercedes' Paddy Lowe with a move to Maranello.

Amid reports in the Italian press that the Briton had been targeted as a potential long-term successor to James Allison, Lowe insisted: "I am not talking to Ferrari and they are not talking to me."

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff also played down what he called an extension of the "silly season".

He told Bild: "Paddy to Ferrari? That's news to me!

"If someone wants to leave you can't stop them, but I try to create a good spirit in the team," Wolff added.

And now, Ferrari chief Maurizio Arrivabene has responded to the Lowe rumours, saying in Singapore: "We have repeated 10,000 times that we are perfectly ok with the people that we have.

"We have the right people with Mattia (Binotto) and the people who are working with Mattia. They just need to continue this atmosphere, look forward to next year, keep an eye on this year also eventually to work in peace.

"That means without pressure. So we don't need to add anyone," he insisted.
