Dyer linked with Mercedes on F1 paddock return
Chris Dyer
(GMM)  Chris Dyer has returned to a formula one paddock for the first time since Ferrari's bungled race strategy in Abu Dhabi ten months ago.

The Australian, formerly Ferrari's head of track engineering, was ousted by the famous Italian team after Fernando Alonso failed to win the 2010 title at the last hurdle.

Italian publications Autosprint and La Gazzetta dello Sport said he was in the Monza paddock on Thursday.

And Finland's Turun Sanomat said it possible that 42-year-old Dyer, who in the past also served as race engineer for Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen, could return to F1 with Mercedes next season.

Also linked with a Ross Brawn reunion at Mercedes is Aldo Costa, who was similarly ousted by Ferrari this year.

Brawn, now in charge at Mercedes GP, would not comment on his team's structure.

And Dyer told Turun Sanomat: "I don't want to talk about Ferrari, it's not appropriate as I don't work there any more."
