The shuffles at BAR

THE staff changes at British American Racing are now becoming a little clearer with the news that the cuts are across the board rather than being concentrated in one or two departments. The structure of the management has also been shaken up dramatically. Our spies tell us that on the engineering side James Robinson has been given a much bigger role and that his job as chief race engineer will go Jock Clear.

The interesting thing is that the aerodynamic department has been largely unchanged with Mariano Alperin and Willem Toet remaining with BAR under the new technical director Geoff Willis.

We hear that Steve Farrell has been put in charge of the drawing office while Gary Savage is now head of composite design.

On the administrative side the chief operating officer, Ian Ross, has stepped down.
