Technical reshuffle at Benetton
Densham has been involved in Formula 1 for 20 years, having joined Team Lotus from Rolls Royce Motors in 1979. After a period in the design office he engineered Elio de Angelis, Johnny Dumfries and Satoru Nakajima before being put in charge of research and development. He moved to Brabham in 1990 and became chief designer briefly before the team closed down and he moved on to Tyrrell where he worked with Harvey Postlethwaite and Mike Gascoyne. In 1998 he left the team and joined the secret Honda design team - playing an important role in the work on the Honda prototype chassis which was tested last year.
