Aston Martin has reached an agreement for Red Bull chief aerodynamicist Dan Fallows to join the team as technical director.
Fallows' switch was announced last year as part of an upscaling project at Aston Martin as owner Lawrence Stroll aims to boost the Silverstone-based team towards being an F1 front-runner.
The move was complicated by Red Bull's insistance that Fallows remained on a two-year contract, with Aston Martin revealing negotiations were still ongoing in November last year.
An agreement has been reached by both parties for Fallows to begin his role at Aston Martin after the season begins on April 2.
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner, as part of a joint statement, said: “We would like to thank Dan for his many years of excellent service and wish him well for the future.”
Aston Martin Group CEO Martin Whitmarsh added: “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Red Bull which releases Dan early from his contract and are looking forward to him joining the team.”
Fallows commented: “I’ve enjoyed many happy years at Red Bull Racing and am proud of what we achieved. I am looking forward to next season and a new challenge.”
