Fry and Harman promoted at Alpine

NEWS STORY
04/02/2022

Alpine has announced the promotion of Pat Fry to the role of Chief Technical Officer and Matt Harman as Technical Director.

The decision is part of a new organization designed to maximise the team's performance, initiated in November 2021. Their mission is to contribute to developing the car's performance to achieve the objectives defined by Luca de Meo, CEO of the Renault Group, and Laurent Rossi, Alpine CEO, to fight for the championship within 100 races after Alpine's arrival into F1.

As CTO, Fry will oversee all technical activities at Enstone, and will be responsible for setting the performance target of the car, defining the technical capabilities and competencies needed and identify future technologies and disruptors. He will ultimately arbitrate on major performance trade-offs and risks, and set the long term development strategy to maximise performance within the constraints of the cost cap.

Matt Harman, previously Engineering Director, will now take responsibility for delivering performance and experiments to the track, structuring the technical organisation and processes, plus growing talents and teams. He will oversee chassis technical direction and bring to the team his unique experience in chassis / power unit technical integration and trade-offs.

Harman's background as power unit engineer will help strengthen the link to the engine department at Viry and further optimise PU integration. He was recruited from Mercedes in 2018, where he spent 18 years, covering a wide range of chassis projects.

"We are considerably strengthening Alpine by having Pat and Matt at the helm of engineering in Enstone," said Laurent Rossi. "Pat is one of the most experienced engineers in Formula 1, while Matt's drive and expertise will prove critical in extracting the full potential of our race cars, thanks in particular to his unique expertise combining chassis and engine development."

"Perhaps it would be better to clarify that the "barn" I am referring to, is the one located behind the driver and in front of the transmission. According to some reports from last year, there was empty spaces there to fill to level up to the competition. "
