Ross Brawn, the English technical director of Benetton during Michael Schumacher's Formula One World Championship winning campaigns, is poised to link up with the German driver again at Ferrari, writes Derick Allsop.

Benetton announced last night that Pat Symonds had been promoted from race engineer to technical director.

Brawn's move to Ferrari, expected to take effect in the new year, casts doubt over the future of another Englishman, John Barnard, who currently heads Ferrari's design operation from his Surrey headquarters.
