Toyota team manager Richard Cregan is to leave the team in November. Here is part of the statement:
We are very sad to be losing a team member of Richard’s qualities but we understand his reasons and we wish him the very best of luck in his new challenge,” said Toyota’s team principal Tadashi Yamashina. “Richard played an important part in Toyota Motorsport’s history.
“We salute his numerous achievements, which include providing a positive working environment at the factory and at tracks around the world as well as implementing the Toyota Way in Formula One, where we have achieved significant progress in areas such as pit stops and car operations.
“Looking to the future I am delighted Jens will take this new opportunity, which he thoroughly deserves. Jens has been with our company for eight years and is a valuable team member who has shown great ability and a positive attitude. He has a suitable amount of time to learn his new tasks from Richard and we are confident the transition will be a smooth one.”
