Ex Ferrari designer Nikolas Tombazis returns to F1 with Manor

Former Ferrari designer Nikolas Tombazis is returning to formula one.

After nine years with the fabled Maranello team, the Greek engineer was ousted amid Ferrari’s wide-ranging team shakeup at the end of 2014.

Also a prominent former McLaren designer, the 47-year-old has now signed up with the newly Mercedes-powered backmarker Manor for 2016.

In a statement, Manor – to also use a Williams gearbox this year – said he will be chief aerodynamicist.

“The team has impressive plans and is investing in all the right areas to achieve its on-track ambitions, so I am very much looking forward to being part of that journey,” said Tombazis.
