Lee Stevenson, former chief mechanic at Red Bull, announced last week his departure from the team after 18 years of service. Through Instagram, Stevenson revealed his move to the ‘other side of the pit lane’, indicating his transfer to a smaller team. Shortly after the announcement, it was confirmed that this team is Sauber (Stake F1 Team), which will become Audi’s factory team from the 2026 Formula 1 season onwards, however, its new role remained a mystery.

Stevenson worked side by side with Max Verstappen for five seasons at Red Bull. At the request of the Dutch driver, the Brit took on a different role from 2021. Chris Gent became Verstappen’s new chief mechanic, while Stevenson became the support team’s chief mechanic.

His outstanding work earned Stevenson a promotion at the start of 2023, when he took on the key role of chief mechanic for the entire Red Bull Racing team. After the Australian GP, ​​however, he announced his departure from the team.

From the Japanese GP onwards, Stevenson will begin his work at Sauber. He has already traveled with the team to Japan, where the next race of the season takes place at the Suzuka circuit. In his new team, he will also take on the role of chief mechanic.
