Peter Prodromou may not move to McLaren after all.
McLaren signed Red Bull's highly-rated aerodynamics chief late last year, but the reigning world champions insisted that Prodromou's full contract be run out.
Now, the German-language Speed Week reports that Red Bull has used that time wisely in trying to convince the Briton to stay put.
"The story is circulating that Prodromou has changed his mind and now wants to stay with Red Bull," the report said.
Prodromou, however, signed a binding contract with McLaren last October, and so a legal battle may ensue unless the great British team is prepared to accept a financial settlement.
