Head of aerodynamics at Red Bull, Dan Fallows, is finally set for his move to Aston Martin in April.
Red Bull had looked set to go to court to try and keep Fallows for a longer period of time, but they reached an agreement with Aston Martin on when he could join the Silverstone-based squad.
Fallows has been with the Milton Keynes-based team since 2006, and was promoted to head of aerodynamics position in 2014. He had previously worked with Jaguar before Red Bull Racing took over the team at the end of 2004.
In this time at the team, Red Bull Racing have won five Drivers’ Championships and four Constructors’ Championships.
