Mercedes technical director leaving
BRACKLEY, England -- Mercedes says its technical director will leave the Formula One team at the end of the 2014 season and will not be replaced.
The team says Bob Bell resigned in December but will not leave until November to pursue "new challenges outside the company."
Bell's responsibilities will then be assumed by executive director Paddy Lowe, with Mercedes saying it will "stream its technical organization."
Bell spent 10 years at Renault as technical director before joining Mercedes in 2011.
