Newey agrees new deal with Red Bull

NEWS STORY
08/06/2014

Red Bull has confirmed a new "multi-year" deal with Adrian Newey, thereby ending speculation linking the design guru with numerous rivals.

Interestingly, as part of the new agreement, Newey will work on new Red Bull Technology projects, as well as advising and mentoring Red Bull Racing as it develops its F1 cars over the next few seasons. The details of the new projects will be announced in due course.

Newey joined Red Bull at the beginning of the 2006 season as Chief Technical Officer. In 2010 the team won its first Drivers' and Constructors' World Championships; the Austrian-owned team has retained the titles ever since, winning both Championships again in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Prior to joining Red Bull, Newey had won Constructors' Championships with Williams and McLaren and the ten titles in total, thus far, make him the most successful designer in the history of the sport. In addition to the fact that he is the only designer to produce championship winning cars for three different teams he has also produces cars that won the 1985 and 1986 CART titles.

Today's announcement, though not entirely unexpected, is sure to frustrate a number of teams that had been linked with the Briton in recent times.

Indeed, the revelation that Newey will be working on other projects for the Red Bull organisation whilst 'merely' "advising and mentoring" in terms of F1 sends out a clear message... 'hands off, you aint getting him!'
