Formula 1: Red Bull poach five Mercedes engineers for in-house engine facility

Red Bull have poached five Mercedes engineers for their new in-house Formula 1 engine facility. Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said the recruits “provide us with the strongest possible technical platform for the future”. The facility gives Red Bull the possibility to design their own power-unit for new rules expected for 2025. Mercedes motorsport director Toro Wolff said he had “expected” Red Bull to try to recruit some of their employees. Red Bull’s engine facility is based at the same campus as the F1 chassis design department in Milton Keynes, making it the only team other than Ferrari to build its cars and engines on the same site. Red Bull have approached a number of other Mercedes employees who have turned them down, BBC Sport understands.
