Red Bull has lost a further two employees to Mercedes as the Anglo-German outfit continues to bolster its technical department.

Mark Ellis and Giles Wood, head of vehicle dynamics and chief engineer for simulation respectively, are considered key to Red Bull's success.

They will both leave Red Bull at the end of the year, but won't be able to begin work at Mercedes until June next year, once their contracts have ended.

Ellis will become Mercedes' performance director and Wood chief engineer for simulation and development.

They are just two of several key losses at Red Bull.
