David North to Renault

David North, one of Formula 1's most experienced transmission engineers, has moved from McLaren to Renault. North has worked as head of gearbox design at McLaren for the last 10 years after a long career with Brabham, during which he helped to design the BT56. He left Brabham in 1987 and spent a brief period with Ralt before joining McLaren.

North's job at McLaren has already been filled by John Sutton, who joined the team from Jordan after a career with both Ferrari and Williams.
