    Default Newey steps back as Red Bull Chief Technical Director

    'Top designer Adrian Newey immediately steps back to Red Bull'

    Adrian Newey takes a step back at Red Bull Racing. The top designer is considered one of the greatest designers of all time in Formula 1, but now makes room for Pierre Waché as technical director, reports L'Equipe.


    Waché comes from the team of Newey and the Frenchman himself was brought forward by Newey. ,, I know what this position means and I know the risk. I will not say that I am afraid of it, but I know what is expected of me. I will show that I can do it ", says Waché in L'Equipe.

    Waché says that he will sail a different course at Red Bull than the Brit. "Newey puts more emphasis on aerodynamics and I want to see more how I can push the car to the ground", he explains.

    In recent years Newey was mainly busy with the design of the Aston Martin Valkyrie, but was rushed to Red Bull last season, to improve the RB13 after it turned out that the car of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo had a huge disadvantage on Mercedes and Ferrari. The updates during the season were made thanks to Newey.


    Newey has won no fewer than ten constructors' titles, more than any other designer. In addition, he is the only designer who won the title with three different teams.

    In the past two weeks, Verstappen and Ricciardo tested the new car, the RB14, in Barcelona. That was in contrast to last season, without any major problems. In two weeks the Formula 1 season will start with the first Grand Prix. The start will be in Australia on 25 March.

    Compilation video of F1 testing in Barcelona. Don't think the engines have sounded this good since the whole hybrid-V6 era started.

    I know, it's testing. But interesting data nonetheless.

    All teams improved, some by a little (Williams) and some by alot (McLaren) over last year.

    Sad to see an iconic team like Williams not doing as well as they should, not sure if it's down to less experienced drivers or engineering.

    Notwithstanding the fact that we have one step softer (faster) tires, Williams haven't really improved.

    They even had Paddy Lowe since last year to help them build a better car, so let's hope they rebound (afterall, they are running the best engine out there).

    Wow... Is Stroll gonna look like a pylon on the track this year if he's down like that?

    Cant wait for the first race!

    After watching Williams on Netflix, I'm not surprised. Williams doesn't have the funding.

    Don't worry, daddy will buy him a seat at Merc the minute Hamilton calls it quits. Bank on it.

    Hamilton calls it quits? Why would he do that?

    He's been talking about it for the last few seasons... don't think he's enjoying it anymore.

    Yeah, but only if he doesn't have a dominant car.
    He's still got lots of good years to go.

    I certainly wouldn't bet against you. Prominent Tommy Hilfiger branding on the side of the Merc this year. Looks like daddy has already put a foot in the door.

    Bottas won’t be with Mercedes next year if he doesn’t start fighting and drives like last year.

    I agree. He has to drive like he wants #1 status and not settle as being Hamilton's teammate.

    I just question the design choice of going with pink for the stupidlysoft and not green

    And they now have 2 blue tires.

    Blue - full wet
    Green - intermediate

    The other blue is the Hard tire "Ice Blue". I guess good for a certain Finn.

    When you run out of rainbow colours, maybe you got too many tires
