In a career spanning 40 years, Rinland has designed and engineered cars across global formulas including Indy Cars, sports and touring disciplines. With two decades spent in the Formula 1 industry working for Williams, Benetton, Sauber, Arrows and twice for Brabham.
“Brabham is pleased to announce former Brabham F1 designer Sergio Rinland as Technical Advisor to the Brabham Group,” Brabham said.
“His role will help determine the technical landscape and future technologies that represent our brand DNA, encompassing pioneering thinking, inspired engineering and innovation, as we plan for Brabham Racing’s return via the FIA World Endurance Championship.”
“It is a pleasure to accompany David on his journey to re-establish Brabham as a household name in motorsport, a name very close to my heart as its last Chief Designer in Formula 1,” Rinland said. “I share with David his vision of where motorsport should be heading, from both the technical and business points of view.”
Brabham is striving to change the landscape of motorsport, not only how a team is funded, communicates and operates but gains return on investment and opportunities for additional revenue streams. The new concept could lower financial barriers in the sport.
