CHIEF ENGINEER, AERODYNAMICS - AERO, McLAREN RACING
British-born Greek-Cypriot Peter Prodromou earned the perfect qualifications for a career in motorsport, graduating from London’s Imperial College with a first-class honours degree in aeronautical engineering. He followed this up with a master’s degree in computational fluid dynamics and structural mechanics, for which he earned a distinction.
Peter originally joined McLaren in 1991, straight from university, and helped to develop a series of race- and championship-winning machines for drivers such as Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen and Kimi Raikkonen. His role within the design office continued to grow, and he became the team’s chief aerodynamicist before departing to join Red Bull. His work there between ’06 and ’14, also as chief aerodynamicist, brought success and acclaim both on and off the track.
He rejoined McLaren, as chief engineer, in September 2014, and in 2017 has taken up the role of Chief Technical Officer – Aerodynamics.
