According to Red Bull, Mr. Wache was recruited a year ago and joined Red Bull from the Sauber team in June of 2013. Now, with the exit of Mark Ellis and Giles Wood from Red Bull to Mercedes, Mr. Wache will assume responsibilities for the Vehicle Dynamics department for the four-time championship-winning F1 team.

About the move, Red Bull noted that Mr. Wache was "well positioned" to take on the new role.

The team notice also recognized its outgoing team members, "The team would like to thank Mark Ellis and Giles Wood for their contribution and wish them well for the future."

Red Bull is the reigning F1 championship team, winning the FIA Formula 1 Constructors' World Championship in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull has also won the Drivers' Championship the same consecutive four years.

The change in staffing occurs in the off-season period as the F1 teams prepare for the many differences the 2014 season will bring, including a major shift from a V8 engine to a turbo V6.

The 2014 racing season will open in mid-March with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
