Cooney leaves Jordan

CHRIS COONEY has left Jordan and will begin work soon at Benetton. The highly-rated young engineer who has been with Jordan for the last two years will thus renew his relationship with Mike Gascoyne. The pair worked together at Tyrrell some years ago before Cooney joined Dr. Harvey Postlethwaite's Honda Racing Developments team and then moved on to work with Gascoyne at Jordan.

A designer who specializes in mechanical design rather than aerodynamics, Cooney was previously employed at McLaren.
