Tony Ross named chief race engineer for Mercedes Formula E program


Valtteri Bottas’s Formula 1 race engineer Tony Ross will make the switch to the Mercedes Formula E program for the start of Sseason 6.

Ross, who joined the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team from Williams, has worked for the German manufacturer since 2011.

The 2019/20 Formula E season will see Mercedes-AMG enter as a full-works operation, following the manufacturer’s decision to quit DTM racing.

The FE team will benefit from knowledge-transfer from their F1 counterparts and the electric powertrain will be developed at the company’s Brixworth site in the UK.
