Alison, brought Mercedes to four Manufacturers Championships but even before Mercedes he has a rich history of success with both Ferrari and Renault and was part of the team at the time of their championship winning.

It’s no secret that Mercedes are not satisfied, and we have received reports of changes they are expected to bring in Imola.
