Red Bull Hustling and Max Verstappen are expressing farewell to Lee Stevenson. The central specialist has chosen to look for asylum somewhere else following 18 years.

Stevenson moves to ‘the opposite side of the pit path’. Stevenson reported his flight through Instagram.

He has completed his last day there. From Monday, he will begin at another F1 group, whose name he doesn’t expressly specify however states is at the opposite finish of the pit path. GPblog has since realized which group he will move to.

There, he will be dynamic quickly one weekend from now at the Japanese Amazing Prix.

So for Stevenson, after almost 20 years of administration, there is no time of ‘planting leave’, wherein he needs to invest a specific time of energy obligatorily sitting at home prior to doing the change to a contender. Stevenson was right now the central repairman at Red Bull – where he moved gradually up significantly.

At the point when he came over from Jordan in 2006, he was designated second technician.

From 2014, he played out the job of first repairman and he consequently finished his experience at the Milton Keynes-based group as boss specialist. Stevenson expresses farewell to fans “Howdy everybody, trust you’re getting along nicely.

Trust you’re having a decent day. Simply thought I’d bounce on here to tell you all that you won’t be seeing additional posts from me, from Red Bull, since the present my last day.

So it’s been an astounding 18 years and everything that I’ve figured out how to accomplish here with the group has quite recently been totally extraordinary,” he said on Instagram.

“Dealing with the principal vehicle here, which is the RB2, then, at that point, the RB16B, and afterward clearly the RB19. It’s been an amazing excursion. I simply need to express gratitude for everybody here. It’s been an astonishing time that I’ve had here.

In 2006 when I began, I never suspected we’d come out on top in races, get shafts, bring home titles, yet we’ve figured out how to do all of that. It’s recently been astonishing. On to the following part.

That part begins on Monday when I fly to Japan to begin work with my new group at the opposite finish of the pit path, it will be an enormous test, yet one that I’m prepared for,” he concluded.
