Chris Dyer's redefined role at Ferrari is factory-based and on "the production side", according to a specialist report.

Following the race strategy gaffe that cost Fernando Alonso the 2010 title, Australian Dyer was stepped down as head of track engineering.

Ferrari said he would get a "redefined" role for 2011.

An article by veteran correspondent Heikki Kulta in Finland's Turun Sanomat claims that role is relating to production, with 42-year-old Dyer - formerly race engineer to Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen - to be stationed at Maranello.

The report also said Schumacher would be happy to reunite with Dyer at Mercedes.

Ferrari's post-Dyer engineering structure features ex McLaren and Red Bull men Pat Fry and Neil Martin in newly prominent roles.
