One of McLaren's two chief engineers has left the Woking based team.

Pat Fry, who joined the team from Benetton in 1993, alternated the role with Tim Goss. Last year, 46-year-old Briton Fry developed the MP4-24, and in 2010 he was in charge of the 2011 car.

It emerged during Thursday's press conference at Monaco that Fry's destination is currently unknown.

"I think it was probably good for him, the right decision for him to take a bit of a break, take a breather," team boss Martin Whitmarsh told reporters.

He added that "someone younger" and "maybe hungrier" will likely replace Fry.
