To help develop its 2014 Formula 1 car, Ferrari has called on the services of ace designer Rory Byrne, whose efforts helped Michael Schumacher claim his seven drivers’ world championships.

Byrne, a South African, who is currently developing Ferrari’s latest road car will also provide "operational support" for the design of next year’s challenger, which will be the product of completely new regulations that are slated to step in.

The 69-year-old was quoted by Auto, Motor und Sport as saying that the current car, the F138, looks like "child's play" in comparison with the new one.

Schumacher won all his 91 races and seven championships in cars designed by Byrne at Benetton and Ferrari. He had retired at the end of 2006, when the German had quit the sport for the first time, but continued to offer his expertise in several projects that stemmed at Maranello.
