Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin have issued a joint statement, confirming that they have finally reached an agreement regarding Dan Fallows’ notice period.
Red Bull announced last June that the Milton Keynes-based team's Head of Aerodynamics Dan Fallows would be leaving for their Silverstone rivals. The energy drink company-owned team stated earlier that Fallows would not be released from Milton Keynes until the end of his contract, which ran until 2023.
However, the two teams managed to reach an agreement which allows Fallows to join Aston Martin on 2 April 2022 – until then, he remains a Red Bull Technology employee. The 48-year-old has been with Red Bull since 2006, most recently as Chief Engineer – Aerodynamics.
Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing’s Team Principal and CEO, said: “We would like to thank Dan for his many years of excellent service and wish him well for the future.”
Martin Whitmarsh, Group Chief Executive Officer of Aston Martin Performance Technologies, said: “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Red Bull which releases Dan early from his contract and are looking forward to him joining the team.”
Dan Fallows, said: “I’ve enjoyed many happy years at Red Bull Racing and am proud of what we achieved. I am looking forward to next season and a new challenge.”
