Sebastian Vettel to get new engineer for 2015 F1 season

Four-time Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel will have a new race engineer next season, with long-serving Guillaume Rocquelin moving to a new role within Red Bull.

Vettel and Rocquelin, who is widely known as 'Rocky', have worked together ever since the German joined the Milton Keynes-based team in 2009.

Their partnership has proved hugely successful, with them securing the last four world titles together.

However, ahead of the start of a new era at Red Bull as technical chief Adrian Newey steps aside for a new role, the outfit is to undergo a reshuffle of its technical staff.

Red Bull sources have confirmed that Rocquelin will move on from his race engineering role to a new senior position with the team - but will still attend grands prix.

Vettel's new race engineer will be Gianpiero Lambiase, who is currently Sergio Perez's race engineer at Force India.
