Formula 1 has revealed they have appointed new roles for certain engineers in a bid to make the best choices for the next big regulation change. Ross Brawn oversaw the movement which is all aimed at a better viewing experience for fans.

Jason Somerville has been signed as Head of Aerodynamics, with Craig Wilson installed as Head of Vehicle Performance. Both men are highly respected and experienced engineers, after having lengthy stints at teams around the paddock. 

"Together they will form part of a small group of engineers dedicated to researching fully the direction and implications of future regulations of the sport," read a release on the F1 website.

"They will liaise with the FIA Formula 1 Technical Department and the teams, sharing the outcomes of their work with a view to improving Formula 1 racing, its entertainment value and its sustainability."

Nigel Kerr will join the set-up in August as Finance Director, after running financial operations at plenty of teams, most recently Mercedes. Brawn said he is delighted with the appointments and believes it will take Formula 1 in a positive direction.

"I am delighted to welcome three extremely experienced figures who have established themselves as experts within Formula 1 over many decades," said Brawn.

"We are building a team that enables stronger links to be forged between Formula 1's management and the sport's various stakeholders, ensuring that regulations are implemented with the involvement of all parties."
