Honda confirms Brawn
Honda Racing F1 Team has announced that Ross Brawn is to join the team in the role of Team Principal with full responsibility for designing, manufacturing, engineering and racing Honda's Formula 1 cars. Ross will work alongside Nick Fry who continues as Chief Executive of the team.
"One of my main tasks over the past six months has been to attract new talent to the Honda Racing F1 Team and we have made a number of key appointments in the areas of aerodynamics, design, engineering, marketing and on the racing team," said Fry. "Today's announcement that Ross Brawn is to join our team is a very satisfying conclusion to the process of refreshing and revitalising a strong and determined team. Ross obviously needs no
introduction. His experience of winning world championships in Formula 1 will be crucial as we seek to put Honda back into championship contention and I am delighted that we will be working together to achieve that."
Shuhei Nakamoto will now take up the role of Deputy MD (Technical) in which he will work for Ross whilst ensuring that the F1 team gains maximum benefit from our Honda R&D operation in Tochigi.
Brawn will start work at Honda on November 26.
