Adrian Newey, the legendary Chief Technical Officer of Red Bull Racing, is set to leave the team at the end of the 2024 season after an impressive 19-year tenure. His departure has sparked intense speculation about his next move within the Formula 1 world.

Guenther Steiner, former Team Principal of Haas F1 Team, expressed surprise at Newey’s early availability. While Red Bull is poised for a strong 2025 season, Steiner emphasizes the importance of long-term planning in Formula 1.

Ferrari: The Logical Choice

Adrian Newey’s departure leaves a void that many teams would love to fill. Among the frontrunners vying for his services, Ferrari stands out. The Scuderia, under Fred Vasseur’s leadership, is undergoing a rebuild and signing seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton for the 2025 season adds to their allure. Newey has previously expressed regret at not having worked with Ferrari earlier in his career, and joining them would allow him to correct that missed opportunity. Additionally, working with Hamilton—a driver he admires—would be a dream collaboration for Newey.

Aston Martin: Financial Muscle

Aston Martin, with its significant financial backing, is another contender. Newey could team up with Fernando Alonso, another driver he has mentioned as someone he’d like to work with. The allure of contributing to Aston Martin’s resurgence could be tempting for the aerodynamic wizard.
