McLaren is bleeding senior staff. Really awful situation for Mclaren. I see Phrew as replacement for Bob Bell. Bell was responsible for the chasis and engine integration. Prew will spearhead this role now according to the article. Since Paddy Lowe left McLaren, McLaren always promoted staff to replace senior staff something I think is not always good for a company. To my knowledge Peter Prodromou is the first high level acquisition in a long time for McLaren. If you look at Ferrari and Mercedes they all have acquired high level staff from rival teams. Both Ferrari en Mercedes have made a big gain the last 2 years. I hope McLaren can bolster their squad again in the coming months because their is a brain drain going on at McLaren since Paddy left them.
