F1: Bob Bell to leave Mercedes AMG F1 team

The Mercedes AMG Formula 1 team Monday announced that Bob Bell is to leave his position as Technical Director.

The team has indicated that Bob Bell resigned his position in December 2013 and will leave the team at the end of November 2014, with the intention of pursuing new challenges outside the company.

The former technical director of Renault has held a similar position at Mercedes AMG since April 2011.

The German team says it is moving forward; it will streamline its technical organisation and Executive Director (Technical) Paddy Lowe will assume the responsibilities previously held by Bell.

The role of Technical Director will not be replaced.
