McLaren Racing managing director confirmed today that Red Bull’s head of aerodynamics will return to the Woking team.

Peter Prodromou, who worked at McLaren from 1991 to 2006 before following Adrian Newey to Red Bull, is set to rejoin McLaren in 2015 – although his current employer is still hoping to hang on to him, with saying that the deal was “not set in stone.”

Nevertheless McLaren is adamant that the team has got its man.

The calculations are simple for Sebastien Vettel as he chases victory in the Japanese Grand Prix to secure a fourth straight Formula One championship.

If Vettel wins at Suzuka on Sunday, and his nearest rival Fernando Alonso finishes worse than eighth, the German driver will join his compatriot Michael Schumacher and Argentine Juan-Manuel Fangio as the only men to win four consecutive titles. And if he does it in Japan, where he has won three of the last four GP races, he’ll be the youngest in the exclusive list to achieve four straight titles.
