Ferrari continues to revisit Lotus' engineering pool as it bids to strengthen its challenge for F1 honours in 2014.

Not content with having already snared the Enstone team's former technical director James Allison and, for next season, lead driver Kimi Raikkonen, the Scuderia has now completed the recruitment of head of aerodynamics Dirk de Beer in a move that apparently began at the same time as Allison's move became news..

The South African, who heads up the CFD department at Enstone, apparently handed in his resignation a couple of weeks ago but, according to BBC Sport, continues to work on next year's Lotus challenger until switching camps at the start of October.

According to reports, de Beer will work alongside Ferrari's current head of aerodynamics, Loic Bigois, with Allison, as technical director responsible for chassis design, overseeing both.

Nicolas Hennel, who is currently at Ferrari, will move in the opposite direction to replace de Beer at Lotus.
