Brawn: Red Bull will be weakened by latest F1 moves
19 November, 2013
World Champions Red Bull have been weakened, and Ferrari and McLaren strengthened, by Formula 1′s latest technical staff movements. Mercedes boss Ross Brawn, who said the dominant Champions will miss the input of aerodynamics chief Peter Prodromou, who has been signed to join McLaren.
“I don’t think any team can lose someone of that experience and calibre without it having some impact,” Brawn is quoted by the Guardian.
Another move that will have an impact, Brawn added, is James Allison’s switch from Lotus to Ferrari.
“James Allison has gone from Lotus having designed a very good car there, to Ferrari, and I am sure next year [Ferrari's] car will be a lot better,” he said.
“That’s the nature of the business. It happens in Formula 1 all the time. Red Bull are where they are because they took Adrian [Newey] out of McLaren. It’s the nature of Formula 1.” (GMM)
