The South African helped design all seven of Michael Schumacher's Championship winning cars at Benetton and Ferrari, before retiring in 2006.
Byrne was spotted at the launch of the F138 at the Maranello factory and the Scuderia have confirmed he is assisting with the development of their 2014 car.
A Ferrari spokesman said the 69-year-old was working on the new Enzo road car project but also providing "operational support" on the 2014 F1 project.
German publication Auto, Motor und Sport had earlier quoted Byrne as saying he was "working full steam" on the car with the 2013 challenger looking like "child's play" in comparison to it.
