May 19 (GMM) Pat Symonds could soon be working with the famous British team Williams.
The authoritative Italian magazine Autosprint is linking Renault’s former long-time executive director of engineering with the Grove based team.
With his five-year crashgate ban reduced to three years in a recent deal with the FIA, 56-year-old Briton Symonds said recently that his company Neutrino Dynamics could be engaged immediately for F1 consultancy work.
Autosprint said Symonds could be a consultant for the design of Williams’ FW33 car for 2011.
Meanwhile, McLaren’s recently departed chief engineer Pat Fry is also being linked with other formula one teams.
He has just begun a compulsory six months of so-called ‘gardening leave’, but Finland’s Turun Sanomat is already linking him with possible moves to Red Bull, Mercedes, Toro Rosso or Force India.
