Red Bull Racing is delighted to announce that Mark Smith will join the company as Deputy Technical Director with immediate effect.

The 43-year old English man joins the team after successful spells producing race winning cars at both Jordan Grand Prix between 1991 - 2001 and Renault F1 between 2001 - 2004. After a brief return to Jordan last December, Smith has decided to commit himself to Red Bull Racing whose debut race will be next weekend in Melbourne.

Red Bull Racing Sporting Director Christian Horner: "I'm delighted that we have managed to secure Mark's services at Red Bull Racing. He brings race winning experience to the team and will form an important part of the foundations that we are putting into place."

Red Bull Racing Technical Director Günther Steiner: "Mark is widely respected throughout the entire sector. He did exceptional work for both Jordan and Renault and is one of Formula 1's most experienced technical experts. We're really delighted we were able to win him over."

Another new face in the Red Bull Racing team is Anton Stipinovich. The 42-year-old South African is the new head of the development team. He spent the past four years working for Ferrari following four years with McLaren.
