Red Bull motorsport advisor Dr Helmut Marko has confirmed that Ferrari have been making approaches for his staff as the Scuderia look to turn around their underwhelming start to the 2019 season. Ferrari have been looking to other teams for solutions after failing to win any of the first six races of the season.
Scuderia team principal Mattia Binotto recently confirmed that he was considering bringing Simone Resta back to the team.
Resta was chief designer at Ferrari before leaving for Sauber – since rebadged as Alfa Romeo – in May 2018.
Binotto has come under scrutiny for combining the roles of team principal and chief technical officer – with the SF90's below-par performance and Ferrari's questionable strategy calls seen as proof that he has bitten off more than he can chew.
