Aston Martin and Red Bull Formula 1 teams have announced today that they have reached an agreement regarding Dan Fallows, who will be joining the former in April.
Aston Martin announced back in June 2021 that the former Red Bull Chief Aerodynamicist will be joining their expanding team, but the energy drinks outfit were unhappy with that development and reports emerged that Red Bull have gone down the legal route to prevent Fallows from joining his new employer or at least delaying the process as much as possible.
However, a joint statement issued by both teams today has confirmed that they have reached an agreement over Fallows who will be joining Aston Martin on April 2, 2022.
