LONDON - Honda have signed BMW Sauber chief designer Joerg Zander as deputy technical director, the Formula One team said yesterday.

Zander, 43, worked with BAR Honda from 2002 to 2005 as a chief engineer before moving to Williams as chief designer where he worked with Loic Bigois, the Frenchman who joined Honda on Monday as head of aerodynamics. He left Williams for Swiss-based BMW Sauber in March 2006.

"This is the latest in a series of key appointments that we have made in order to bolster our team," said senior technical director Shuhei Nakamoto. - Reuters
