Red Bull Racing and Mercedes have confirmed that Ben Hodgkinson will be able to join Red Bull Powertrains later this year.

It was announced last year that Hodgkinson would leave Mercedes to join Red Bull Powertrains as the technical director. Both parties announced this Friday that Hodgkinson would be allowed to work at Red Bull right after the Spanish GP.

“Mercedes F1 and Red Bull F1 today reached an agreement regarding the appointment of Ben Hodgkinson,” the statement read.

“Under the terms of that agreement, Ben, who joined Mercedes in August 2001, will be free to join Red Bull Powertrains from 24 May 2022.”
