Pat Fry has attracted a swathe of engineers to follow his move from McLaren to Ferrari.

After a long and fruitful McLaren career, Briton Fry switched to Ferrari last year and is now the famous Italian team's chassis technical director.

According to Italy's Corriere dello Sport, he has convinced his former senior McLaren colleagues including Rupad Darekar, Jonathan Heal, Ioannis Veloudis, Lawrence Hodge and Giacomo Tortora to join him at Ferrari.

And Finland's Turun Sanomat reports that McLaren's aerodynamics project leader Marcin Budkowski is also set to switch to Ferrari.

But on the F1Enigma blog, McLaren managing director Jonathan Neale insisted Budkowski is simply taking a "well earned sabbatical" and will return to work later in 2012.
