Red Bull has reorganised its Formula 1 technical department structure with Pierre Wache promoted to the newly-created role of Technical Director.

Iconic F1 designer Adrian Newey, a world title winner with McLaren, Williams and Red Bull, retains his place as the team’s Chief Technical Officer to oversee the department working on both its F1 efforts with the new RB14 plus his new focus on Aston Martin’s road car projects including the Valkyrie.

In order to increase its technical department strength, the four-time F1 world champions have promoted Chief Engineer of Performance Wache into the new role of Technical Director to work alongside Newey. Wache, a former Sauber chief, worked as a Vehicle Dynamics Engineer before moving on to become the Head of Vehicle Performance at the Swiss squad until he left in 2013 to join Red Bull.

Chief Engineering Officer Rob Marshall, Head of Aerodynamics Dan Fallows and Chief Engineer for Car Engineering Paul Monaghan’s positions remain unchanged.

Red Bull is aiming to close the gap on Mercedes at the sharp-end of the F1 grid as it looks to break the German manufacturer’s dominance in the sport in the V6 Hybrid era. Last year Mercedes matched the Milton Keynes-based squad’s feat of four consecutive F1 world drivers’ and constructors’ crowns and is now targeting a fifth straight title haul to equal the all-time record set by Ferrari between 2000-2004.
