RedBull, Lotus swap race engineers for Kimi
Raikkonen’s race engineer from 2012 Simon Rennie moves from Lotus to Red Bull and will work with Webber next season, while Webber’s engineer Ciaron Pilbeam moves in the other direction to become chief race engineer at Lotus.
Red Bull confirmed to ESPN that Rennie had been brought in to replace the outgoing Pilbeam.
“We can confirm that Ciaron Pilbeam has left the team to take up a new position with Lotus,” a Red Bull spokeswoman said. “We’re pleased to welcome Simon Rennie to Red Bull Racing who will be Mark Webber’s race engineer.”
