Adrian Newey currently plies his craft as the chief technical officer of the Red Bull Racing Formula One team.
The job of Newey is to design race winning cars and this is something he has achieved for several decades, having created title-winning cars for McLaren, Williams and Red Bull. This feat makes him the only designer to have won the Formula One Constructors’ Championship with three different teams.
F1 loves speculation and I would go so far as to say that it thrives on speculation so let’s assess today how likely such a signing could be.
The Italian newspapers La Gazzetta Dello Sport and Corriere Dello Sport suggest that Racing Point are looking to lure Adrian Newey from Red Bull Racing. The British racing team would like to reunite the 61-year-old top designer with Sebastian Vettel in 2021, but according to Helmut Marko, this will not happen.
Vettel and Newey worked very successfully together at Red Bull between 2010 and 2013. The two men have won eight world titles (four drivers and four constructors) and Lawrence Stroll is said to be planning a new partnership. Racing Point will be called the Aston Martin F1 Team next year and Newey has very good ties with the car brand Aston Martin. He recently designed the Valkyrie hypercar.
At Red Bull, however, they are not worried, according to the words of Marko when talking to the German Auto Bild. “Adrian is certainly under contract with us,” said the Milton Keynes-based team’s advisor.
There has been talk recently between Newey and the Stroll camp, but this meant nothing. “Adrian recently got to test a rare Aston Martin and thanked Stroll for it. Nothing more,” said Marko.
