Newey has reached 64 years and one would say he is now in his prime, yet he appears to be withdrawing from Formula 1 racing. Christian Horner, who is the Red Bull team Principal, confabulated with Auto Motor and Sport about Newey’s role and position in the Milton Keynes team in the future. While shedding light about Newey and his period in Formula 1, Horner revealed that they have always worked with Adrian Newey, just not every day, and that’s not a new or surprising working condition for the team.

Mr Horner revealed that over the last few years, Mr Adrian has taken some time to breathe from the day-to-day work in Formula One. He now divides his time between the cutting edge technology and the championship. On the other side of the coin, the Red Bull boss does not think this is a complete disadvantage for his team. He insists that they have the strongest technical staff and that they have willingly allowed Adrian to leave. As an ambitious man, Mr Newey is also working on the Valkyrie supercar project.

Mr Horner further shaded light on Newey’s time with Red Bull team, working in Formula One. He elucidated that 50% of his time was spent on Formula One, that he comes to the office a few times a week but when his help is needed, the technical team can always bring him in.
