Bob Bell, who joined Mercedes from Renault in 2011, is to leave the world championship leaders at the end of November.

In a brief statement, the Brackley based outfit said:

"Bob resigned his position in December 2013 and will leave the team at the end of November 2014, with the intention of pursuing new challenges outside the company. He has held the position of Technical Director since April 2011.

Moving forward, the team will streamline its technical organisation and Executive Director (Technical) Paddy Lowe will assume the responsibilities previously held by Bob.

The role of Technical Director will not be replaced."

Bell's career began with McLaren in 1982 where progressed from the role of Company Aerodynamicist to Head of Research and Development in 1988.
