Jaguar team director will replace BMW Andretti’s Roger Griffiths as chairman of the Teams and Manufacturers Association ().

 

Barclay is currently still a member of Formula E’s Sporting Working Group, but is succeeding the BMW-Andretti team principal in the rebranded association (formally known as FETA) that was first stewarded by Mahindra boss Dilbagh Gill.

 

“Roger decided that his tenure was at the point where he was ready to hand over the baton – we had a vote and the guys asked me to do it… We do kind of rotate and there’s a voting process that we go through,” Barclay said.

 

 

“I’m more than happy step into that role. We all have a responsibility to do it at some point I would say, so I take on that baton for probably the next few years.

 

“We  (FETAMA) put our recommendations forward to Formula E and the FIA – we have a great collaborative environment in Formula E, it’s one of the things you hear people talk about quite often and it genuinely is true,” Barclay added.

 

“The teams are very open and collaborative in terms of the major issues, helping when it comes to controlling the technology we’re looking at, managing costs.”
