It is what it is but they could have used his help sooner.
I’m pretty sure the deal was made a while ago and just waiting for his gardening leave to be over... Depending on how flexible their concept is, he may be able to have a larger than expected impact on their car this season.

Wouldn't it be wasteful to spend time or money on the 2020 car?
Building a best in field car for the 2021 season has to be the goal surely?
Since whatever Renault do to the 2020 car, it's unlikely to ever be anywhere near best in field. So anything more than minor tweaks would be a waste of resources.
No It wouldn’t be wasteful to spend time & money on 2020, it would however be foolish to ignore 2021 but as with everything I ife it is all about balance
That said, people need to understand a technical director does not design or build a car, that is what there is 750 staff working at Enstone for
Just like the director of any other company, they are far to busy ensuring they get the very best out of the team they employ, making sure the structure is correct, they have the resources they need & ensuring the design direction the team is following is correct
I very much doubt Fry will have any influence over this years car, by the time his feet are under the desk it will testing, then the first race, then there will be a development phase that by the time the process followed it will be June before anything designed from March is put on the car, then it will be the summer break, and from then on all resources will be switched to 2021
So will Fry waste his time interfering with the team working on the 2020 model? Probably not
