Carlin Steps Down from Jordan

The Jordan Grand Prix team have announced the appointment of Adrian Burgess as their new sporting director, after Trevor Carlin stepped down from his role

Carlin Steps Down from Jordan

Carlin, who joined Jordan when the Midland Group took over at the end of last season, will focus on his ongoing duties as managing director of the Carlin Motorsport team.

"I want to thank Trevor Carlin for the exceptional work he has done to bring Jordan Grand Prix back on track," said Jordan's managing director Colin Kolles. "I fully understand his reasons for stepping down, though his departure does create a void, both within the team and for me personally.

"We have worked together for several years and I consider him a trusted friend and colleague."

36-year old Burgess joined Jordan at the same time as Carlin, working as sporting manager, a role he will keep at the Silverstone-based squad.

"I would like to thank Trevor for all the hard work he has put into rebuilding the team for the future and for helping to put in place the building blocks we need to move this team forward," said Burgess.

"Now, we must get our heads down and get on with the job of preparing for our entry as Midland F1 in the 2006 championship".

Carlin added: "I am very pleased to be involved in the whole Midland F1 Project from its conception, and I hand over my role as sporting director at Jordan Grand Prix to Adrian Burgess, knowing he will do a superb job.

"Alex Shnaider and Colin Kolles have a very clear vision of where they want to take Midland F1 and the purchase of the Jordan Grand Prix team was the first step."

How Red Bull's dynamic leader shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
