If you listen carefully, you can hear the excited screams of thousands of Mercedes fans that have just found out that James Allison is returning as their technical director. Yes, that’s right, over the spring break, it seems the team have had a bit of a reshuffle. Talk about an Uno reverse.
As reported by Autosport, the switch will see James Allison return to his Technical Director role within F1 and Mike Elliott take up the role of Chief Techincal Officer. But perhaps the best part of this news is seeing all of your reactions – who doesn’t love a meme?
