“IP is the main asset of our team” says Pierre Wache Red Bull team’s technical director
Aston Martin’s updated AMR22 had multiple new parts that showed significant similarities to Red Bull’s RB18 model, causing it to be dubbed a ‘green Red Bull’. The FIA confirmed it had investigated Aston Martin’s design methods, but found its processes complied with the regulations. This triggered a Red Bull investigation relating to reverse engineering and "potential illicit IP transfer”.
Make sure we protect ourselves and our assets are secure
“We just want to be sure that we protect ourselves, the main aspect of the budget is IP, and we want to make sure that how we spend our money is secure and our assets are secure,” said Pierre Wache.
Trade secrets, know-how and people movement.
At the end of last year, two senior aerodynamicists, Dan Fallows and Andrew Alessi, left Red Bull to join Aston Martin!
“...what you can’t control is what they take in their heads”
Says Red Bull Team principal, Christian Horner.
He also noted his “grave concern” that "Red Bull’s IP may have been compromised". “It is quite a thing to instruct your team to come up with a very close-looking clone of our car and, of course, a few people have moved over the winter period, and what you can’t control is what they take in their heads,” he said.
‘we now check that we don’t have any IP leak’
Definitely sounds to me like Red Bull need a trade secrets programme - and quick !
