Geoffrey Willis has joined Red Bull Technology and will take on the role of Technical Director, reporting to Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Newey. The new appointment is effective from 23 July 2007.

Forty-seven year old Willis has worked alongside Newey in the past when both men were at Williams and the two men share an interest in yacht design. The Southampton born, Cambridge University graduate worked for the British America's Cup team in 1987, where he developed hull and keel designs using computational fluid dynamics.

His first Formula One role came with the Leyton House team from where he joined Newey at Williams, eventually becoming Chief Aerodynamicist. He moved to BAR in 2002 as Technical Director and left the Honda team in 2006, since when he has been tending his garden.

Mark Smith who has been Technical Director since January 2006, has been offered another senior position within the company.
