Charlie notes in the chat box that Pat has taken a job with Ferrari. I think that warrants an official post on

Ferrari have appointed Pat Fry as assistant technical director just over a month after he quit rivals McLaren.

Fry left his role as chief engineer at the Woking-based outfit in May after 18 years and his new job begins on 1 July.

. . .

Fry would have played a key role in developing McLaren’s 2011 car but will now use his experience at Ferrari.

. . .

Anyone have the inside scoop on this? Did he have the job lined up back in May?
