Norbert Haug has played down the recent movement of staff between leading Formula One teams.

After Ferrari signed Red Bull's strategy boss Neil Martin, Helmut Marko accused the famous Italian team of trying to poach the "spirit" of the new champions.

Another high profile signing by Ferrari is McLaren's Pat Fry, but Mercedes' Haug insists that staff transfers are commonplace.

Asked if the German marque has also tried to engage some of Red Bull's personnel, he told the Welt newspaper: "I don't want to rule it out, or the reverse.

"We are all trying to improve our own teams and looking for good people," added Haug.
