“During this time we have reviewed our management structure and believe now is the right time to create a new position of Chief Executive Office for Tour Racing Ltd. There are many opportunities ahead of us with INEOS and this move will ensure we are best placed to make the most of them.
“Fran has been with the Team from the very beginning and during this time she has played a key role in our successes and gained considerable experience in all areas of the Team. She is perfectly placed to take on this new position.

This is a brilliant team that has already achieved some extraordinary things. But I know our future together is going to be even better."
