Yes .... plus I am maintaining my usual scepticism of F1 PR bullshit ... as Nico seems to be born to be "good cop" ..... so whilst I am superficially pleased with the quote, it actually makes me suspicious that he felt the need to say that at all.
Hope that's not too confusing.... best to draw your own conclusions ... but I just found the quote interesting given its context of the firing of Haug followed by Lauda and Wolff's arrival... the [media] confusion as to Lowe's role vs Brawn's and the fact they have hired 3 or for TDs and none of us on the outside can work out how all these various folks are meant to relate to each other.
I don't understand this. TD is not a title for life. It's merely a job role.
Till now I've had 4 different job roles in the company I currently work for but all with different job titles and job descriptions.
Forget the names for a moment and think of the roles. It makes complete sense. Especially the engineering side (which is what is mostly important in terms of car design).
I dare say this structure is not dissimilar to other teams. You just don't know them because they are not big names.
-Technical Director (responsible for overall coordination on a more strategic level)
-Engineering Director (responsible for the chassis design)
-Head of Aero (responsible for the shape of the car)
-Head of Simulation and Vehicle Dynamics (responsible for simulation systems and technologies Windtunnel/CFD/Sim/x-poster rigs).
