James Allison is staying put at Ferrari. In July, as the Italian team's 2015 resurgence hit an apparent dip, speculation suggested Ferrari might not renew the contract of its new British technical boss.

But then the team surprised the F1 world by re-signing Kimi Raikkonen, amid speculation a new deal for Allison might be the next order of business, with an announcement scheduled for this weekend's Italian grand prix at Monza. Indeed, the F1 insider Leo Turrini reveals: "Allison has recently signed a contract renewal."

He said the new deal will take Allison into 2018, and he will be joined at Ferrari from next year by Jock Clear, with the fellow Briton having formerly worked alongside Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes. "They will booth have much to do and I will be rooting for them," said Turrini. (GMM)
