Trevor Carlin replaced at Jordan
9 June 2005 –
Trevor Carlin has left Jordan Grand Prix. The team announced today that the Sporting Director will be replaced by Adrian Burgess. Carlin will be back to work for his own racing team. The real motive of Carlin is not completely known, but it is said a difficult relationship with Colin Kolles could be the reason Carlin lef the team. Carlin though didn't mention a word about the situation within the team.
Carlin commented about his departure: "I am very pleased to be involved in the whole Midland F1 Project from its conception, and I hand over my role as Sporting Director at Jordan Grand Prix to Adrian Burgess, knowing he will do a superb job. Alex Shnaider and Colin Kolles have a very clear vision of where they want to take Midland F1 and the purchase of the Jordan Grand Prix Team was the first step."
Adrian Burgess is pleased with his new role in the team. "I would like to thank Trevor for all the hard work he has put into rebuilding the team for the future and for helping to put in place the building blocks we need to move this team forward. Now, we must get our heads down and get on with the job of preparing for our entry as Midland F1 in the 2006 championship."
