Lewis Hamilton comments on the possibility of Adrian Newey joining Ferrari, and says: “If I was to make a list of people I would love to work with, he would absolutely be at the top of it.”

Ahead of the Miami Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton gave his first comments on Adrian Newey’s exit from Red Bull.

“Very much,” Lewis said when asked if he would like to see Newey join Ferrari.

“Adrian is known for such a great history and track record, and he’s obviously done an amazing job in his career at engaging with teams and the knowledge that he has, I think he would be an amazing addition.

“They already have a great team, they’re making huge progress and strides forward, the car is quicker this year.

“But it would be a privilege to work with him. It is all private conversation stuff, but if I was to make a list of people I would love to work with, he would absolutely be at the top of it.”

The Briton then explained he feels “privileged” to be able to drive an evolution of Newey’s designs when he entered Formula 1 in 2007 with McLaren, a year after Newey left the team at the end of 2005.

“From my perspective, when I joined McLaren, it was an evolution of his car, and I think I got there just after he left, so that car would have evolved from the design that he had worked on.

“So I felt privileged that I had the chance to touch something he had worked on.

“Racing against the team that he has been so heavily a part of over the years, has been a massive challenge.

“But we just need to remember that there are a lot of people in the background, there is not one key person, it is a whole team of people who do the job.

“You can imagine of all the amazing experiences that he brings, the people he works with will continue to do an amazing job and continue to build great cars, but any team would be fortunate to have the opportunity to work with him,” Hamilton concluded.
