Coughlan returns to NASCAR after unsuccessful return to F1
11 November, 2013
Mike Coughlan is returning to America’s premier NASCAR series after an unsuccessful stint with Williams.
After leaving Formula 1 in disgrace amid the ‘spygate’ scandal of last decade, the former McLaren chief designer re-emerged in NASCAR, working for Michael Waltrip Racing.
He then returned to Formula 1 as Williams’ technical director for 2012, but in the middle of this year Williams replaced him with another controversial Formula 1 figure, Pat Symonds.
Coughlan, 54, is now returning to the NASCAR world, with the Richard Childress Racing team.
According to the official NASCAR website, he will be the technical director. (GMM)
