Steiner gets technical director role
GUNTHER STEINER has been appointed technical director of Jaguar Racing to replace the departed Steve Nichols. The American, who designed the most successful Formula 1 car in history in 1988, resigned on Monday.
Steiner has been with Jaguar for only a couple of months, having been drafted in to run operations from the Ford World Rally Championship team.
The role of Formula 1 technical director is largely a managerial position these days and so the appointment of Steiner is not a huge surprise. The big question now will be whether or not chief designer John Russell and chief aerodynamicist Mark Handford stay with the team.
