Red Bull poaches five more staff from Mercedes

Red Bull poaches five more staff from Mercedes

Red Bull has continued its raid on Mercedes by hiring an additional five staff for its new Powertrains department.

In late April, Red Bull announced the appointment of Ben Hodgkinson as technical director after previously working for Mercedes High Performance Powertrains for 20 years.

Ahead of overseeing the running of the current Honda power unit from next season, and then designing and developing its own system from 2025, the team is embarking on a major recruitment drive as it fully integrates the PU with chassis design at the Red Bull Technology Campus in Milton Keynes.

Joining Red Bull will be: Steve Blewett as PU production director [previously head of manufacturing at Mercedes HPP]; Omid Mostaghimi, head of powertrains electronics and ERS [F1 electronics team leader with MHPP]; Pip Clode as head of mechanical design ERS [team leader, F1 PU concept with MHPP]; Anton Mayo as head of PU design ICE [mechanical engineer with MHPP]; and Steve Brodie as group leader ICE operations [F1 trackside and final inspection manager MHPP].

Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner said: “Red Bull’s mission to bring all aspects of its Formula One operations in-house through Red Bull Powertrains is an enormously exciting undertaking.

"But also an extremely demanding one, and we know that success will only be achieved by bringing in the best and brightest talent, by providing them with the right tools and by creating the right environment in which they can thrive.

"Today’s key leadership team appointments demonstrate our strong commitment to those goals and we certainly benefit from our campus being located in the UK where we have access to a huge wealth of engineering talent.

"Working with our new technical director, Ben Hodgkinson, and alongside key personnel retained from Honda Racing Development, each of the senior personnel announced bring a wealth of experience, expertise and innovation to the Red Bull Powertrains programme and provide us with the strongest possible technical platform for the future.”

Red Bull will also be announcing a new head of mechanical development in the coming weeks.
