Gary Anderson returns to the Jordan F1 team
He will commence his new role in Early December working alongside Eghbal Hamidy and Trevor Foster in the role director of race and test engineering.
Commenting on the move which has surprised many F1 insiders, Anderson said, "I am thrilled to be returning to Jordan Grand Prix. Working at Jaguar and Reynard has been an important phase in my career, and I am now able to use additional experience gained from those projects to work with Jordan on building for future success."
Jordan's Chief Executive, Eddie Jordan said, "Gary has been a huge part of Jordan Grand Prix's history. We are delighted to welcome him back after his time at Jaguar Racing and Reynard Motorsport, and I think this is testament to the great working relationship and friendship we have enjoyed over the years. I believe his capabilities have been strengthened by his time spent in other teams and he will be an enormous asset to Jordan, adding further experience and knowledge to our already strong engineering team."
Anderson was born and lived in Northern Ireland before coming to England in 1972 to begin his F1 career with Brabham and subsequently McLaren. In 1981 he set up his own business making parts for F1 teams and designing and building his own Anson cars in F3, Super Vee and Sports Cars. He later worked in Champcars and F3000 prior to joining Jordan.
