Tim Goss, who previously alternated leadership of new car design with Fry, now has overall responsibility for developing new cars. He said:
Now I?óÔé¼Ôäóve taken on both roles ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ but there?óÔé¼Ôäós obviously been some shifting of responsibilities within the team as, clearly, I can?óÔé¼Ôäót do the work of two people.
As director of engineering, my role will be to co-ordinate a small team of project engineers who are responsible for the specification, design and development of our cars.
Paddy Lowe has been promoted from engineering director to become technical director. He said:
It?óÔé¼Ôäós great for Neil [Oatley] and me to be joined by Tim as another director on the technical side. With the three of us, we?óÔé¼Ôäóll not only be able to more efficiently spread our workload, but, through Tim & me, we?óÔé¼Ôäóll also share race attendance.
It?óÔé¼Ôäós very important to have senior technical management at the racetrack, because that?óÔé¼Ôäós where you score the points, but, equally, if you spend all your time away then you risk overlooking some of the hard work that happens back at the factory.
