Some interesting moves, especially Mercedes, they keep on strengthening their team even after years of domination!

Guillaume Cattelani this time last year was announced to be leaving McLaren and linked to Haas, interesting he landed up at Red Bull instead.

Does anyone know of any other moves?

About Alpine-Renault :
Hawkins is just a senior deputy, Ben Mallock started working mid-2020, but it's cool for Andy Hallas to come back at Renault-Alpine, he's a good guy.
Ah yes, and Simon Virril has been in office for over a year already.
Thanks for the news !

Who are the engineers for
Checo
Vettel
Ricciardo
Sainz

Tom Stallard who was Sainz’ engineer at Mclaren has stayed and is now Ricciardo's engineers.
It sounded like the same guy who was Vettel's engineer now works with Sainz
Just a fan's point of view

That is pretty common. Race engineers can be a entry level possition. Look at Andrea Stella, wasn't long ago that he was Michael Schumacher, Kimi Räikkönen and Fernando Alonso's race engineer at Ferrari.

In terms of Checo it is Hugh Bird who was Max' Performance Engineer last year.
