White joined Cosworth in 1987 after completing a mechanical engineering degree at Southampton University. He worked on the development of the Cosworth DFX engines in CART and then spent two years at the new Cosworth Racing Inc. facility in Torrance, California, working on the installation of the dynos and developing the new Cosworth XB Indycar engine. At the end of 1996, however, he moved back to Europe and was put in charge of the engineering for the Formula 1 programme at Cosworth's Northampton headquarters and he remained in that position until 2004 when he was hired to become technical director of Renault F1's engine operations in Viry-Chatillon. In 2005 he was promoted to be joint managing-director as well, after the retirement of Bernard Dudot.
