That is the claim of the authoritative Italian publication Autosprint, who first reported the move as a rumour a month ago.

Autosprint's correspondent Alberto Antonini said Loic Bigois, a 52-year-old Frenchman, will now "definitely" move from Mercedes in mid-September, although an official announcement will probably not be made.

Bigois started his career with Ligier/Prost, moving to Minardi until 2003 when he was recruited by Williams as chief aerodynamicist.

In 2007, he moved to Honda, which became Brawn and subsequently Mercedes.
