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?

What a load of crap!.. Just as I suspected.. more useless publicity.. :thumbdown :fmad:
Maybe they should try a controversial driver position change manouver @ the end to get the attention of the press.

Oh, wait, that only works if you are up the front :wink2: :p

Jaguar are trying to secure a contract with Newey. Mclaren won't let him slip though, if they do, their history.

I hope it happens.

I will have you know Jag are back in most areas. The cars are selling well and the quality has gone through the roof.
There are fantastic car to drive. The XJR is sensational.

Positive proof of Fords understanding the importance of Brand image. Lifting the product to never seen before levels at the same time protecting the heritage.
