“Red Bull Is Announcing It Like A Purchasing Campaign” Mattia Binotto Calls Out Red Bull’s Flashy Mercedes Recruit

Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto claims the Italian constructors are still lacking and will need three or four races to understand their potential.

Mattia Binotto, the Scuderia Ferrari team principal is of the opinion that Red Bull are doing extra advertisement with their trade of the Engineers lately. The Austrian giants have been hiring some top mechanics from the Silver Arrows lately and the Formula One scene is quite pumped up for this.

The Milton Keynes based team are on the verge of having their own powertrains division from next year after they part away with Honda at the end of this season. Mainly, for this reason Red Bull is taking in engineers from their arch rival Mercedes.

Mattia informed that there happened to be transfer of Engineers in this sport earlier as well. Binotto, in an interview with Corriere della Sera, conveyed on this context, “Over the last three years, more than 30 engineers have been hired from other teams. Red Bull is announcing it like a purchasing campaign – we are doing it without making it known.”

Mattia Binotto also talked about Red Bull's Engineering recruitment.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner conveyed on this, “Red Bull’s mission to bring all aspects of its Formula 1 operations in-house through Red Bull Powertrains is an enormously exciting undertaking but also an extremely demanding one, and we know that success will only be achieved by bringing in the best and brightest talent, by providing them with the right tools and by creating the right environment in which they can thrive.”

The Bulls to bring in Ben Hodgkinson and few more Engineers from Mercedes starting from this year. Ben has been a loyal member of the Silver Arrows for almost two decades now and finally he’s on the move.

Apart from Ben, some other names that are coming up are Omid Mostaghimi, who is Mercedes’ F1 electronics team leader. Pip Clode, who is Mercedes’ F1 power unit concept team leader. Mercedes’ head of manufacturing Steve Blewett. Anton Mayo, a Mercedes engineering team leader and Steve Brodie, Mercedes’ F1 trackside and final inspection manager who are all on this list.
