According to media reports, Mercedes has begun to restrucutre its technical team.
Autosprint has reported that Mercedes aerodynamics chief John Owen is moving up to be technical director. Mike Elliot, who has just joined from Lotus, will fill Owen’s old role.
Autosprint wonders, however, “What will happen with the trio (Aldo) Costa, (Geoff) Willis and (Bob) Bell?”
At last count, the well-known trio held high-ranking technical roles at the carmaker-owned squad. Autosprint said Mercedes could be scaling-down.
