Fry joins Manor as engineering consultant

By on

As part of its continuing build up to put in a stronger 2016 campaign, Manor Racing has announced the signing of former Ferrari engineer Pat Fry. The Englishman will join the team to provide engineering consultancy as it gets its 2016 challenge underway.

The team aims to exploit Fry's extensive experience in Formula One, including roles at Benetton, McLaren and Scuderia Ferrari

“We are extremely fortunate to have Pat on board to help us hit the ground running with our exciting new technical package", said Dave Ryan, Racing Director at Manor Racing.

"The aim is to bring performance to the car with effect from the Barcelona tests, then translate that to the race track in Melbourne, to ensure we make the strongest possible start to 2016 and have a good basis for development in the early part of the season.”

The news follows last week's announcement of the team hiring Nikolas Tombazis, also a former Ferrari man.
