Adrian Newey scoffs at Renault switch rumours

Published on 26 Jun 2018 11:57

Adrian Newey has scoffed at rumours that suggest he could switch to Renault. The Red Bull technical boss, who is arguably the most famous F1 designer of all time, told Auto Bild: "That will not happen."

Red Bull's Dr Helmut Marko agrees, saying Newey in fact wants to stay put for a longer term. "It is no longer about the if, but only the how of the new contract," he said.

Renault, too, denies that rumours about signing up Newey are accurate. "I deny it completely and don't know where it comes from. I think it's a misunderstanding," team boss Cyril Abiteboul told AS newspaper. "I think Adrian is extremely loyal to Red Bull, so I don't know where that information comes from."

Yeah I never saw him leaving. Why leave a team that gives him free hands and great pay for Renault?

Lets wait till the ink is dry before we all decide RB is best for Adrian!
Am certain RB think RB are best for im, but as it stands all teams would welcome him, give him a free hand and ensure that his great-grandchildren never have to work!
