Allison, Lowe rumours on the rise

Speculation is rising by the week that James Allison’s future may be at Mercedes.

Earlier this year, following the sudden death of his wife, the Briton left Ferrari and has since been linked with a return to a British-based team.

The rumours may tie in to reports that Mercedes may soon have a vacancy, with Paddy Lowe linked with a switch to fill Allison’s old job at Ferrari.

Lowe told the BBC he “would not deny” that his contract is coming up for renewal, but when asked if he has been in contact with Ferrari insisted: “No.”

And when asked if he would like a job at Maranello, he said: “I can’t answer that.”

At the same time, Allison’s rumoured links to Mercedes but also McLaren have grown, with the BBC saying he has turned down Renault and ruled out Williams and Red Bull.

As for Lowe’s future, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said: “The silly season has gone from drivers to senior personnel.

“Paddy is a great guy, he’s been part of our success and plays a very important role. It is clear people are discussing contracts and the media is not the place to talk about it.”
