Another Italian is headed for McLaren, the Ferrari media insider Leo Turrini reports. Earlier, it became clear that Fernando Alonso will take his race engineer at Ferrari, Andrea Stella, with him to Honda-powered McLaren for 2015.

Another Italian is now hot on Stella's heels, Turrini wrote in his Quotidiano blog. Early in 2014, Faenza based Toro Rosso split with its chief designer Luca Furbatto. He had moved to the Red Bull-owned team in late 2011 after a long stint at McLaren. Turrini said Furbatto is now returning to the Woking based team. (GMM)

  • This could be a big plus to McLaren, which does seem to need design help with downdraft and aerodynamics (where the earlier-dominant RB continued to do pretty well even with the 2014 changes).
