Paddy Lowe has been named as the technical director of McLaren Racing, moving up from his previous position as the team’s engineering director. Tim Goss, the chief engineer on the McLaren MP4-25 moves up to fill Lowe’s previous job.
Neil Oatley will remain in his role as director of design and development programmes.
“It’s great for Neil and me to be joined by Tim as another director on the technical side,” explains Paddy. “With the three of us, we’ll not only be able to more efficiently spread our workload, but, through Tim and me, we’ll also share race attendance. It’s very important to have senior technical management at the racetrack, because that’s where you score the points, but, equally, if you spend all your time away then you risk overlooking some of the hard work that happens back at the factory.”
The trio have between them a total of 62 years at McLaren.
