With a race engineer locked in, our second instalment reveals the results of who our panel of F1 experts from across the globe has voted as the best chief designer in F1’s history. The title of chief designer is an illustrious one, and the role requires the perfect blend of technical knowledge and creativity to solve the annual problem of how to design F1’s fastest car. Although many creative geniuses have come and gone, our experts worldwide have managed to get the candidates down to three: Rory Byrne, Gordon Murray and Adrian Newey. All three have won F1 world championships with multiple teams, but only one can lead the design for F1’s greatest-ever team. Host Jess McFadyen is joined by Ben Anderson, Jake Boxall-Legge and technical illustrator Giorgio Piola to sift through F1’s greatest design minds – and reveal our chief designer pick.
