Red Bull appoints new head of F1 aero

Red Bull has appointed a new head of aerodynamics as Peter Prodromou prepares to head to McLaren.

McLaren confirmed in 2013 that it would be signing Prodomou from the four-time champions, but Red Bull had hoped to be able to convince him to stay as his contract runs until 2015. However, Red Bull has now admitted defeat in those attempts by placing Prodromou on gardening leave, while appointing Dan Fallows – who McLaren had claimed to have hired in January – in Prodomou's old role.

“We are pleased to announce that Dan Fallows becomes Head of Aerodynamics at Infiniti Red Bull Racing with immediate effect,” the team confirmed in a statement.

“Dan has worked as part of the team's aerodynamic department for many years. Previously working as a Team Leader (Aerodynamics), he left the team for a short time last year. He has now returned to Infiniti Red Bull Racing to begin working in his new role.

“We can confirm that Peter Prodromou has commenced a period of gardening leave; we would like to thank him for his valuable contribution during his time with the team.”
