Isn´t that Lewis´race engineer?

Well if true then money talks...

What I never understood is why Ferrari didn´t sign Adrian Newey after Rory Byrne retired in 2005/2006. He was F1´s best designer for more than a decade and his McLaren contract was running out. Could have prolonged Ferrari´s winning streak from 2000 right up until now.

Ferrari signs Fry as assistant tech chief
The Ferrari team has confirmed that Pat Fry will join the Italian squad at the start of next month, following his exit from McLaren.

Fry, 46, worked for the McLaren team as chief engineer, before leaving the British outfit earlier this year following 18 years in the team.

Ferrari confirmed on Tuesday that Fry will join on 1st July, when he will start working in the new role of assistant technical director.

Fry will report directly to technical director Aldo Costa, while the current structure of the technical department remains unchanged.

McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh said last month that he was confident his team would not be hurt by Fry's exit.

"Pat's been with the company for about 18 years, so he's made a great contribution to the team over a number of years," said Whitmarsh.

"I think it was probably good for him, the right decision for him to take a bit of a break, take a breather. I think he's worked very hard for the team for a number of years.

"Within our team, then, I think we've got quite a bit of a talent and depth, so in these situations it's a great opportunity for someone younger, maybe hungrier, to come along and replace all of us.

"We're all replaceable. I think the process will be the same but we're manned with fresh new engineers."

Good news for Ferrari, he'll be a useful asset to them.

MP4-22 or Mp4-24?

THe Mp4-22 was the best McLaren since 99.

The Mp4-24 on the other hand was a flop.

I hope it´s the Mp4-22 :pray:

both of them

good news this, Ferrari are best when they have some level-headed guys in there, not just italians, who (stereotypically) solve problems by waving their hands around and shouting

Won't be very effective as of now. Pat Fry can't work with Ferrari until January or so.

Hmm, so if he can't start working with them until January, the benefits of his know-how won't really be seen until 2012? Because by January, I'd hope that the F-2011 (or whatever they're going to call it) will be pretty much ready for a shakedown...

Yeah, he won't able to contribute in f2011/f11 due legal contract with Mclaren. Nothing new here every team has a same clause, like him Force India's Mark Smith can only join Lotus next year.

Interesting Force India lost more team personnel's than any other team on the grid.

IIRC we have team strength restricted to 400 employees for next year ''hmm''

Sauber have applied to drop the BMW name.

Also, Valencia ticket sales up: http://www.yallaf1.com/2010/06/23/date- ... ket-sales/
"Not being in August and having lower temps". Nothing to do with Alonso being in a car capable of winning then...
