Acknowledging its aerodynamic weaknesses, the fabled Italian team last year signed well-known F1 aerodynamicist Loic Bigois to switch from Mercedes.

Ferrari is currently developing its 2013 car, probably to be called the F2013, in Toyota's state-of-the-art Cologne wind tunnel, while the Maranello facility is closed and improved.

At the same time, Autosprint reports that the scarlet-clad team has signed Martin Bester.

The Briton's last post was as Williams' aerodynamics team leader.

He has also worked for BMW and McLaren's F1 teams.

Prior to working at Mercedes, chief aerodynamicist and Frenchman Bigois worked alongside Bester at Williams, the Italian magazine added.
