Morris to leave Sauber for McLaren

Sauber chief designer Matt Morris is to take up a new role as engineering director at McLaren, Martin Whitmarsh has confirmed.

Morris told Sauber of his intention to leave some weeks ago, although the exact date of his departure has yet to be determined.

However his current job will be taken over as of Monday July 1 by Eric Gandelin, previously Head of Concept at the Swiss team.

The 39-year-old Morris previously worked at Cosworth and Williams, and was formerly a transmission specialist – a role that could clearly be very useful to McLaren.
