Blewett will take the role of PU production director, Mostaghimi will become Head of Powertrains Electronics and ERS, Clode Head of Mechanical Design ERS, Mayo becoming Head of PU Design ICE and Brodie the Group Leader ICE Operations.
Each member of the team has experience working at Mercedes on its power units that have taken the world championship seven seasons running in an undefeated run going back to the 2014 season.
“Today’s key leadership team appointments demonstrate our strong commitment to those goals and we certainly benefit from our campus being located in the UK where we have access to a huge wealth of engineering talent,” Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said of the announcement.
“Working with our new Technical Director, Ben Hodgkinson, and alongside key personnel retained from Honda Racing Development, each of the senior personnel announced today bring a wealth of experience, expertise and innovativity to the Red Bull Powertrains programme and provide us with the strongest possible technical platform for the future.”
