Pat Fry, Chassis Technical Director


Pat joined Renault F1 Team in February 2020 as Chassis Technical Director.




Born in Surrey, United Kingdom, Pat has extensive experience in Formula 1 having worked for McLaren, Ferrari, Manor and Benetton since entering into a career in the sport in 1987.



He first began at Benetton in the team’s Research and Development Department in Witney working on active suspension systems. After working on the Test Team for a short period, Pat’s first racing trackside role was working as Race Engineer to Martin Brundle in 1992.



In 1993, he moved to McLaren where he would remain for 17 years, contributing to 66 Grand Prix victories, one Constructor Championship and three Drivers’ Championships. Pat held a number of roles at the Woking-based team beginning on the Test Team before stints as Race Engineer to Mika Häkkinen and David Coulthard. He later took on a role overseeing both team’s race cars and he was then promoted to Chief Engineer of Race Development where he played a seminal role in the success of the MP4-20, MP4-22 and MP4-24 cars.



A move to Ferrari followed in July 2010, bringing to a close his 17 years at McLaren. He started as Assistant Technical Director and later Head of Race Track Engineering. Pat continued in lead positions at Maranello including Director of Chassis and Director of Engineering.



He left Ferrari in 2014 but returned to Formula 1 in 2016 as Manor Racing’s Engineering Consultant. Pat then returned to McLaren in 2018 on a temporary contract as Engineering Director, aiding the team to its best Championship finish since 2012 with fourth place last season. Pat’s arrival at Enstone was confirmed in November 2019 and he began his role with Renault in February.


He will oversee the design, conception and development of all Formula 1 cars leaving Enstone in his role as Chassis Technical Director.
