SUCCESS NEWEY FROM F1 RIVAL RED BULL

ASK BY ASTON MARTIN TO SUCCESS NEWEY FROM F1 RIVAL RED BULL.

Since joining Red Bull in 2005, Newey has drawn a lot of attention from opposing teams. He was crucial to the team’s championship-winning performance with Sebastian Vettel from 2010 to 2013 and currently with Max Verstappen.

According to Motorsport.com, Aston Martin CEO Lawrence Stroll has upped the ante to entice the 65-year-old iconic designer from Milton Keynes to the company’s nearby Silverstone headquarters during the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix weekend with a lucrative contract offer.

For years to come, the driven Stroll has been laying the foundation for a squad that can contend with Red Bull, Mercedes, and Ferrari.

Apart from building a cutting-edge headquarters and planning to construct a new wind tunnel, Stroll has also inked a works Honda contract for the 2026 regulations and drawn in a number of important designers from competing teams.

Bringing in Newey might be considered the final missing component needed to go closer to the top teams in Formula One history and persuade lead driver Fernando Alonso to extend his contract beyond its expiration.

It may also serve as a further argument to persuade Mercedes-interested world champion Verstappen to maintain his productive partnership with Newey and Honda, which is located just 20 miles away.

Rivals have failed in their past attempts to entice Newey to leave Red Bull.

However, given the internal strife at Milton Keynes and the continuing power struggle between Christian Horner, the team manager, and the Austrian side of the company, some of the factors that have kept Newey associated with Red Bull may possibly shift.

Now, to cap off his remarkable career, Stroll has extended an attractive alternative challenge to Newey, placing him among the highest-paid drivers on the grid.

Given that Newey signed a multi-year contract extension last year and stated he had no intention of leaving Red Bull, it is unclear if Stroll would be successful this time.
