NEWS STORY
15/09/2014

Its tug-of-war with Red Bull seemingly at an end, McLaren has today confirmed Peter Prodromou as its chief engineer.

Prodromou, who previously worked for McLaren between 1991 and 2006, rejoins the Woking team after a successful stint at Red Bull, and is a key appointment for the team as it pushes ahead with the specification and development of next year's MP4-30 Formula 1 challenger.

"It's fantastic to return to McLaren, and to see a mixture of faces old and new," said Prodromou. "Of course, I have first-hand experience of just what a passionate, focused and capable race team exists within these walls, and I've already seen the enthusiasm and positivity that exists to return McLaren to world championship-winning glory.

"I, too, am determined to work flat-out to do everything I can to help initiate a new chapter of success in McLaren's history."

"On behalf of everyone at McLaren, I'd like to welcome Peter to the team," added team boss, Eric Boullier. "He joins us at an auspicious time; we've spent much of 2014 working to develop and organise our design department, and his arrival neatly coincides with the conclusion of that restructuring.

"Peter has proved beyond doubt that he's one of the most capable and intelligent engineers in Formula 1, and everyone at McLaren is looking forward to the contribution he'll make as we push ahead with our ambitious plans for the future."

"I'm delighted to welcome Peter back to McLaren," said McLaren Racing chief operating officer (and acting chief executive officer) Jonathan Neale. "He joins us at an extremely exciting time: we're making exciting progress with our new engine partner, and our entire design department has been galvanised and motivated by an ongoing restructure that has really begun to bed-in and deliver results.

"His position as chief engineer will enable him to play to his considerable strengths as a top-flight aerodynamicist and an engineer, and I'm sure he'll dovetail seamlessly with his fellow engineers.

"We're steadily putting everything in place to ensure that McLaren can once again return to its race- and world championship-winning ways. We're under no illusions that we're yet there, but Peter's appointment is a very significant one, and is also a very public reminder that we're adding strength in depth to our organisation all the time."
