And Gordon Murray, the very successful Brabham designer and later creator of the famous McLaren F1 road car, has agreed a consultancy deal with Group Lotus.
Shame Williams didn't grab him first. They need a star designer.

Williams have Mike Coughlan the best man next to Adrian Newey in motor sport, but I think Fernandes securing Steve Nielsens services is a real coup. Why Boulier got rid of him at Renault is beyond me.
