FOR­MULA One technology is com­ing to V8 Su­per­cars with TeamVoda­fone ap­point­ing Wil­liams F1 en­gi­neer John Rus­sell as di­rec­tor of en­gi­neer­ing and pro­duc­tion for next year. Rus­sell will be em­ployed to im­prove car re­li­a­bil­ity and make the Com­modores of Jamie Whin­cup and Craig Lown­des eas­ier and quicker to ser­vice and set up be­tween race events. Team prin­ci­pal Roland Dane says the ap­point­ment would also al­low Rus­sell and chief en­gi­neer Ludo Lacroix to pur­sue other rev­enue op­por­tu­ni­ties for Triple Eight Race En­gi­neer­ing, the com­pany be­hind TeamVoda­fone.
