Pujolar out at STR

Xevi Pujolar, Max Verstappen’s engineer at Toro Rosso has been dropped, as the team tries to sort out internal politics within the organisation. It seems that Pujolar was not getting along with the English engineers in the team but was protected as he was working with Verstappen. With the Futchman gone to Red Bull, Pujolar is no longer required, but it seems he won’t be going to Red Bull Racing with Max. The Spaniard has been in motor racing since 1995, working his way up from karting to the Nissan Workd Series to Formula 3000. He started in F1 in 2002 with Eddie Irvine at Jaguar Racing and then moved to Williams, where he worked with Juan Pablo Montoya, Ralf Schumacher, Mark Webber and Alex Wurz, before moving to HRT in 2009. He returned to Williams to work with Pastor Maldonado before moving to STR in 2014.
