Allison returns to top Mercedes role

Just two weeks after denying the rumours, James Allison is indeed returning to a highly-prominent role at Mercedes. But now, Auto Motor und Sport confirmed new reports that Briton Allison, 55, actually did return to the prominent role of technical director three weeks ago. “Mike Elliot will take over from Allison as chief technical officer,” correspondent Tobias Gruner said. Mercedes confirmed to Auto Motor und Sport that the Allison-Elliot role swap “came into effect a few weeks ago”. “We have reversed the roles,” Speed Week quotes Wolff as saying. But now as Allison’s replacement as chief technical officer, 48-year-old Elliot will be tasked with “bringing the factory up to the best possible standard, both technically and in terms of personnel”.
