Or you've not been paying close attention.

off the top of my Head I can think of Fallows, Hegedus and Andrew Alessi.
Maybe you are right I am not closing that closely but still, I don't remember any big signings (except Jayne Poole, who is not a technical employee) from Mercedes in the last 3 years. While they lost big names like Eric Blandin, Mike Elliot, Ben Hodgkinson, along with James.

I wouldn't put Hegedus on that level, but yeah I agree Fallows and Andrew are big names that moved. But they filled Fallow's seat with Enrico Balbo who moved from Mercedes. Wache and Newey is still there.
Hegeddus was the project leader for the pitstops at RBR. He's doing the same at AMR. They say he's responsible for the great pit stops at RBR.
Hegedűs is a bit strange for me ,I mean not so active. What I see on his instagram just plays with lego and kids.:)

It looks bad, but it may well be that a fresh eye will see it differently and maybe pick up something being overlooked
When arguing with a fool, be sure the other person is not doing the same thing.

D’Ambrosio going is wild. Maybe the MB board will push Toto at some point and hire Jerome as his replacement at one point?

James Allison must be under tremendous pressure to rectify W15 now. I think their only hope now is for AMG to deliver a solid PU for 2026

Personally i think James has not delivered. He had some slack as he was not responsible for W14 and his focus is W15 but it seems like same old things. I wonder if James has identified where the team is lacking -in terms of technical people.

It's an impossible task after Merc wasted 2 years. F1 is too competitive. only chance is when rival fumble.

Thomas Mahler says that he did not leave by his own choice but the team sacked/fired him. So at least it is not another defecting to Ferrari. It was Mercedes choice.
