Christian Horner explains how Red Bull was able to “accommodate” the way Adrian Newey works, as he sends out warning to rivals who attempt to sign him.

In light of Adrian Newey’s departure from Red Bull, team boss Christian Horner was asked how he believes a rival team would fare is they try to build their team around the legendary designed.

“I think Formula 1 is a very complicated business now, particularly with the cost cap, elements that you have to take into consideration,” Horner said.

“You have to think very carefully where you commit your funding, where you commit your budgets, what resource, where you’re going to get best bang for buck.

“And I think that, obviously, we had a structure that evolved around Adrian over the years that was able to accommodate the way that he works. He’s the only designer in Formula 1 that works still on a drawing board.

“But of course, as the regulations have become tighter and tighter, and Adrian’s role has evolved and developed within the team over the last years, others have had to step up.

“And we’ve had to change how and evolve how we work, which is the same in any organisation.

“It has to continue to evolve and adapt, and that’s what we found,” the Briton concluded.

It remain to be seen which team, if any, will sign Newey after he leaves Red Bull in early 2025. The teams being mentioned as his possible destination are Ferrari, Mercedes, Aston Martin, McLaren, and even Williams.
