'Ferrari hire 10 new engineers'

The reshuffling at Ferrari continues as the team look to emerge from their current slump with reports claiming they have hired several new engineers.

Ferrari haven't made a major assault on the Drivers' Championship in quite a few years and their stuttering start to the 2014 campaign resulted in Stefano Domenicali stepping down as team principal in April.

He was replaced by Marco Mattiacci, but it appears the Scuderia are set for a major overhaul of their technical department with Gazzetta dello Sport revealing they have hired 10 new engineers to work at Maranello.

The report claims they have managed to poach three experts from Mercedes, three aerodynamicists from Red Bull while a simulation specialist from the latter will also join them.

However, Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda has been quick to play down suggestions that they are losing top staff to their rivals.

"We have all the important engineers under contract," he told Germany's Auto Motor Und Sport. "We all remain on board and have long-term contracts with our major engineers."
