STILL GROWING TECHNICAL STAFF AT FONDMETAL MINARDI

A new, worthy technician enriches Fondmetal Minardi Team. A few days ago, in fact, arrived in Faenza the new chief of the composites department Herbert Ehrlinspiel. The young engineer arrives, from Germany, to the Italian Team after several outstanding professional experiences in races and particularly in F1, at the composites department of the Sauber team and, more recently, at Toyota team Europe, where he contributed - as chief of the carbon fibre dept. - to the successful project Le Mans '98. Ehrlinspiel joins the many engineers - among whose, the just-arrived, Rupert Buchsteiner and Gianfranco Fantuzzi - who arrived in Faenza in the last months, in order to strengthen the technical staff lead by Gustav Brunner. In the meantime, the team technicians are working hard to analyse the figures collected in the two-days testing at Mugello (even if only one was effective, because of the bad weather conditions) that gave positive results, with a steady improvement in driver's performance. Thursday: Shinji Nakano 63 laps 1:31:352 Wednesday: Shinji Nakano 9 laps 1:33:210
