Agathangelou leaves Red Bull

Ben Agathangelou has left the Red Bull F1 team. Agathangalou headed up Red Bull’s aerodynamic department before the arrival of Peter Prodromou, however since the arrival of Adrian Newey and his engineers, Agathangelou had been moved into a more organisational role, something he wasn’t happy with.

Agathangelou has spent his whole working career in Formula 1. In 1994, after graduating from the University of Southampton in aeronautics and astronautics, he joined McLaren. After three years in Woking, he moved to a senior role at Tyrrell before heading to Honda to be their chief aerodynamicist. Although Honda were not in Formula 1 during his time with them, he helped them with their test program. In 1999, Agathangelou moved to Benetton to be their cheif aerodynamicist. On the arrival of Mike Gascoyne in 2001, he then moved to Jaguar Racing.

There is no news on where Agathangelou will be moving to next.
