The English team has announced the arrival of David Warner, a Red Bull engineer, and Jonathan Carter, who currently works for Renault.

He joined McLaren in 2002 and was the composite manager before becoming responsible for the monohull. He then held positions as main integration engineer, then assistant design manager.
