Renault's Lom 'busy' with new FIA role

No longer in a Renault shirt, Fabrice Lom has revealed he is still "very busy" in the world of formula one. A high ranking engineer at Renault throughout the Williams, Benetton and Fernando Alonso eras, the Frenchman's last team role was in 2011, liaising between the engine supplier and its most prominent partner, Red Bull.

But a role at the FIA opened up late last year, with the governing body's engine boss Gilles Simon having accepted a job to design a V6 for Craig Pollock's new 2014 venture Pure. Lom is the FIA's new head of powertrain. "The FIA contacted me and proposed a job," he revealed. "I was quite happy at Renault but it sounded like a very interesting opportunity for me and so I decided to take it. It is a very busy role," Lom admitted.

He is in charge of the powertrain for F1, world rally, world endurance, world touring cars and F3. One of Lom's tasks, he revealed, is "discussing the details of the 2014 F1 rules with the manufacturers". (GMM)
