Former Ferrari technical boss Pat Fry has joined Manor Racing as an engineering consultant.
Fry will thus be reunited with Nikolas Tombazis, with whom he worked at Maranello. The departure of both men was announced in December 2014.
The 51-year-old Fry previously worked at Benetton and McLaren in senior engineering roles, before joining Ferrari in 2010.
His former McLaren colleague and Manor racing director Dave Ryan said: “We are extremely fortunate to have Pat on board to help us hit the ground running with our exciting new technical package.
“The aim is to bring performance to the car with effect from the Barcelona tests, then translate that to the race track in Melbourne, to ensure we make the strongest possible start to 2016 and have a good basis for development in the early part of the season.”
