Jaguar boss Bobby Rahal has signed British American Racing mechanical designer Mark Ellis. Ellis is expected to work alongside Jaguar technical director Steve Nichols.

BAR boss, Craig Pollock is rumoured to be unhappy about Ellis leaving. A spokesperson for British American Racing said: "We can confirm Mark Ellis is leaving BAR but not where he is going to. Mark will finish working for us in mid-April."

Ellis is expected to take up his new position at Jaguar before the weekend of the San Marino Grand Prix. Ellis has worked alongside BAR technical director Malcolm Oastler. His new position at Jaguar - the official title of which is still to be announced - will see him co-ordinate the efforts of Eddie Irvine's and Luciano Burti's race engineers.
