Tim Goss, who previously alternated leadership of new car design with Fry, now has overall responsibility for developing new cars. He said:
Now I?σΤιΌΤδσve taken on both roles ?σΤιΌΤΗ£ but there?σΤιΌΤδσs obviously been some shifting of responsibilities within the team as, clearly, I can?σΤιΌΤδσt 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?σΤιΌΤδσs great for Neil [Oatley] and me to be joined by Tim as another director on the technical side. With the three of us, we?σΤιΌΤδσll not only be able to more efficiently spread our workload, but, through Tim & me, we?σΤιΌΤδσll also share race attendance.
It?σΤιΌΤδσs very important to have senior technical management at the racetrack, because that?σΤιΌΤδσs 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.
