Rivola returns to work for Ferrari

Massimo Rivola has returned to work for Ferrari.

The Maranello team's sporting director missed the recent Spanish grand prix, amid speculation he had been suspended or dismissed over an internal team scandal.

"He needed a week off and we gave it to him," was all team boss Maurizio Arrivabene would say in Barcelona.

However, Rivola - who moved to Ferrari from Toro Rosso in 2009 - was also linked with a switch to McLaren or Audi.

But Leo Turrini, the well-known Ferrari insider and blogger, reports that Rivola, 43, is now back to work and will be trackside this weekend in Monaco.

"I am glad the issue is resolved," Turrini wrote on his Quotidiano blog.

"Good luck to Massimo," he added, "and a warm greeting to those with, at times, an excess of imagination."
