This is great news.
I remember he was always tayloring the Ferrari Front wing for each race track, which is something they have lagged behind McLaren, Redbull and, well most of the teams on the past few seasons.
Plus - this is the guy who's designs beat Newey's many times but he rarely got the credit he deserves.
I for one can't wait to see what he comes up with!

This is really great news! I'm so glad to hear this. Rory Byrne is probably the only man that Newey truly fears. Rory's experience and genius will be a big help for Ferrari, that's for sure.

Gooo Ferrari!!!

Surprised to see Luca di Montezemolo's assertion that "a V6 engine is not part of Ferrari tradition". Sure, it's not the most enormous part of Ferrari tradition, but it's still most definitely a part. The first engine in the long line of Ferrari motors to be called a Dino was a V6, and you surely can't be more a part of Ferrari tradition than being an engine called a Dino - and at the head of that tradition too. And that's not all - the Dino V6 was the engine in the back of the legendary Sharknose 156 which took Phil Hill to the world title (and took the scuderia to its first constructors' title) in 1961.
