'Mercedes GP want former Ferrari tech man'

'Merc GP want former Ferrari tech man' | Planet F1 | Formula One | News, Standings, Results, Features, Video

Mercedes GP are reportedly keen on signing former Ferrari technical director Aldo Costa as part of a 'profound restructuring of the team.'

After a disappointing start to the Championship for Ferrari, Costa, who had been their technical director for just over three years, was replaced by Pat Fry.

And although the Scuderia said at the time that Costa would remain in an undefined position, it was announced in July that he would in fact be leaving.

The 50-year-old was placed on "gardening leave" until the end of the year.

However, Costa may not be without a job for too long as Mercedes GP are reportedly interested in signing him.

According to Auto Sprint, Merc GP team boss Ross Brawn, a former Ferrari man himself, wants Costa as part of a 'profound restructuring of the team.'

Brawn is believed to have already spoken to Dieter Zetsche, the head of Daimler, about his need to employ more technical staff in order to compete against the likes of McLaren, Ferrari and Red Bull.

And Costa is at the top of his list.
