Manor Marussia has appointed former Ferrari designer Nikolas Tombazis as its new Chief Aerodynamicist.

Tombazis has worked for Benetton, McLaren and Ferrari across a two-decade spell in Formula 1, most recently as Ferrari's Chief Designer.

Tombazis departed Ferrari following its troubled 2014 campaign but has now secured a switch to Manor for the upcoming campaign.

"I am very happy to be joining Manor at this exciting time in its development," said Tombazis.

"The team has impressive plans and is investing in all the right areas to achieve its on-track ambitions, so I am very much looking forward to being part of that journey.

"The existing design team is already very strong and I look forward to working with a great group of people to make the most of the opportunities that lie ahead to help us progress through the field over the next few seasons."
