The Ferrari team is congregating this week at Madonna di Campiglio, an Italian ski resort, for its annual pre-season media event.

One of the first pieces of news to emerge from the Dolomites is the move from Mercedes of Steve Clark to the famous Italian squad.

Briton Clark was Brackley based Mercedes GP's highly respected senior technical advisor.

Italy's Autosprint, reporting from the 'Wrooom' event, said the switch could be announced officially by team boss Stefano Domenicali on Wednesday.

Marca, a Spanish sports newspaper, said 42-year-old Clark's new role will be similar to the axed Chris Dyer's -- in charge of Ferrari's race engineers Andrea Stella (Fernando Alonso) and Rob Smedley (Felipe Massa).

He formerly worked with Ferrari technical director Pat Fry at McLaren.
