McLaren Racing managing director Jonathan Neale confirmed today that Red Bull’s head of aerodynamics will return to the Woking team.

Peter Prodromou, who worked at McLaren from 1991 to 2006 before following Adrian Newey to Red Bull, is set to rejoin McLaren in 2015 – although his current employer is still hoping to hang on to him, with Christian Horner saying that the deal was “not set in stone.”

Nevertheless McLaren is adamant that the team has got its man.
