Conspirator Symonds to return to paddock in 2013 - Pat Symonds' Formula One paddock exile is about to end, according to international reports.
Although working as a crucial technical consultant with Marussia in the last couple of seasons, the Briton was officially serving his Formula 1 ban in the wake of the 2008 Renault 'crashgate' scandal in Singapore.
But the Spanish newspaper ABC, and Italy's specialist Autosprint magazine, said Symonds will return to the paddock with Marussia in a direct role in 2013.
ABC said the 59 year old veteran will be Marussia's technical director.
