McLaren chief engineer Phil Prew jumps ship to Mercedes
By:

Veteran McLaren engineer Phil Prew has left the Woking team to join Mercedes, Motorsport.com can reveal.

Prew will take on a senior role at the Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains facility in Brixworth, as chief engineer.

His presence will ensure that the power unit division has a man on hand who has detailed knowledge of the chassis side, helping to improve integration even further.

Prew stopped work at McLaren several weeks ago, and is currently on gardening leave prior to taking up his new job on January 1.

His departure is a major blow for McLaren. He joined in May 1997, and has been a mainstay of the race team ever since, latterly as chief engineer.

During that time he worked closely with current Mercedes technical boss Paddy Lowe and Lewis Hamilton, two others who have switched camps.
