Sky Sports reports that “both Ferrari and Aston Martin have approached Newey, whose preference is Ferrari”.

Yesterday, Red Bull announced that their Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey will leave the team in early 2025.

Now, the F1 media is engaged in speculation on what the legendary designer will choose to do next.

If Newey decides to move to a different team, it is expected that the choice will be made between Ferrari, Mercedes, Aston Martin and McLaren.

It has already been revealed that Aston Martin made a concrete offer to the Briton a few weeks ago, and Sky Sports now reports Ferrari did the same last week.

“Sky Sports News understands both Ferrari and Aston Martin have approached Newey, whose preference is Ferrari,” the Sky Sports article stated.

“The Scuderia have already signed Lewis Hamilton for next year on a multi-year contract.

“A Ferrari representative held a meeting in the last week with Newey, who will not serve a period of gardening leave when he departs next year, leaving him free to join another Formula 1 team to help design their 2026 car.

“Aston Martin have been looking to sign Newey and held talks in the last few months, but they believe the 65-year-old is more keen on Ferrari.

“Newey will not work on Red Bull’s current F1 car for the rest of this season, instead putting his efforts into Red Bull’s first hypercar, the RB17, before leaving in early 2025.

“He will be at this weekend’s Miami Grand Prix and has not yet ruled out the possibility of retirement from the sport,” Sky Sports concluded.

It’s interesting that there are no news regarding a potential offer to Newey from Mercedes, especially since the team has been openly pursuing Max Verstappen.

It remains to be seen if Mercedes will attempt to reunite Newey and Verstappen at their Brackley base.
