One of Red Bull's most senior engineers is set to leave the team and return to McLaren, it has been reported.
Head of aerodynamics Peter Prodromou will leave the team at the end of the season before joining McLaren for the 2015 season after the need to complete a year of gardening leave under Red Bull's strict contractual requirements.
Prodromou is a key member of Adrian Newey's design team, so much so that Newey took the designer with him to Red Bull in 2006 when the pair worked for McLaren.
The Woking team principal confirmed that a number of high-profile hirings would happen this and next year, and it's believed Prodromou is one of those along with a number of others as the McLaren team looks to reshuffle its engineering staff following a poor season.
