"The time has come for me to move on," Ellingworth said.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the chance to lead this team. There has been some fantastic momentum, and I feel I leave the team in a strong position. We've worked well together in this global pandemic to keep racing and have achieved some fantastic results.
