Caterham restructures technical department

Caterham opts for changes, Jody Egginton promoted to deputy technical director
The Caterham F1 Team has announced that it has restructured it technical department.

The primary changes see Jody Egginton, currently operations director of the team, promoted to deputy technical director with immediate effect.

Performance director John Iley meanwhile will now broaden his role to include management of an 'Advanced Projects Group', looking at 'future innovation that can be applied to the F1 team and all of Caterham's automotive and technological interests'.

The changes have been made in a bid to 'strengthen further the organisational structure' of the team as it prepares to face the challenges presented by the 2014 F1 regulation changes.

“I am pleased that both Jody and John have agreed to take on the enhanced responsibilities we are asking them to embrace as part of this reorganisation,” said Caterham technical director, Mark Smith. “Jody has many years of experience on the pitwall and in the factory that will be invaluable for our team in the latter stages of the 2013 season, and particularly as we head into 2014.

“John's role will also enable him to take a broader view of all our performance characteristics, and will allow him to innovate - something that is crucial in F1 but which is often difficult to dedicate resource to, particularly for a young team like ours.”
