McLaren Designer signs with Jaguar.

Jaguar announced today (friday) that McLaren car designer Adrian Newey will join them in August 2002.
Adrian Newey has designed the 1996, 97, 98, 99 championship winning cars for Williams and McLaren.
I suppose Mercedes engines were'nt enough for him and wanted Ford Power :D
Hopefully Adrian Newey can design cars that will win championships for Jaguar and especially for Ford. :D

Has this been made official? Last I heard (this morning) he had not been signed yet.

If this is true, Jag will benefit greatly from Neweys Input, now all they need is a reliable (and powerful) engine. :p

FORZA FERRARI!!!!!

On Formula1.com it now says that McLaren are denying that Newey will be leaving them and said that he would stay with the team after his contract finishes in August next year.

I don't understand this. Why would Jaguar announce Newey joining the team and then later have McLaren deny that he has signed?

Sorry to say this but Newey is staying with Mclaren. It was a mix up with Jaguar management.
