There are reports in the media that former HWA CEO Gerhard Ungar could be joining Caterham shortly to take over the technical management of the team. The German engineer spent 26 years with AMG and HWA, beginning in 1987. In that time he oversaw 170 wins in 364 races as well as 10 Drivers’ and 9 Manufacturers’ titles for Mercedes-Benz. Ungar was spotted visiting the Caterham factory on Monday and an announcement is expected.
Ungar rose through the ranks at AMG from being a mechanic to move into the management and joined HWA as its Technical Director in 2000 and became the CEO at the end of 2012.
