Ferrari has confirmed that McLaren’s previous chief engineer Pat Fry is to join the Maranello group next weekend

An official statement issued this morning reads: Ferrari publicizes that, as from 1st July, Pat Fry will join the Scuderia’s Technical Department. 46 year old Fry, who has previously worked for Benetton and McLaren, will take on the new role of Assistant Technical Director, reporting directly to Aldo Costa.

Pat moved into Formula 1 in the late 1980s by joining Benetton’s Research and Development department as well as a stint with its test team, to which he returned in 1991 before being promoted to the Race Engineer role for driver Martin Brundle in 1992.

The transfer to McLaren came a year later, swayed by friend and coworker Giorgio Ascanelli (now Toro Rosso Technical Director). Fry became Race Engineer to future double Champion Mika Häkkinen in 1995 before moving to the test team in 1996 – despite hearsay linking the Englishman with Ferrari.

In 1997, Fry turn into David Coulthard’s Race Engineer, working with the Scot until the end of the 2000 campaign before directing both cars in 2001. 2002 brought with it another promotion, to the job of Chief Engineer – a role held until his recent exit from the team.

while the current structure of the Technical Department remains unmoved.
