Helmut Marko admits Adrian Newey leaving Red Bull Racing is a huge loss

Red Bull Racing advisor Helmut Marko admitted the departure of iconic designer Adrian Newey from the team it as a "big loss" for the reigning world champions.

Newey's pivotal role in shaping Red Bull's dominance in Formula 1 over the past two decades has left a lasting legacy within the sport.

The confirmation of Newey's departure was made earlier this week, signalling the end of his influential tenure with the team in the first quarter of 2025. 

Throughout his time at Red Bull, Newey's expertise in aerodynamics and mechanical grip has been instrumental in the team's success, securing six constructors' titles and seven drivers' titles.

Marko, speaking to Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung, expressed the significance of Newey's departure, stating, "This is of course a big loss for Red Bull Racing. 

"He may not have always been involved in the day-to-day running, but he was the one who controlled the complex knowledge of the whole car."

Despite Newey's departure looming, speculation surrounds his next career move, with rumours linking him to Ferrari and Williams. 

The timing of his exit means he will not contribute to Red Bull's 2026 F1 car, which will be developed under a new set of technical regulations.

Marko remains confident in Red Bull's engineering team's capabilities but acknowledges Newey's historical impact on navigating rule changes. "We have built up a young engineering team in recent years, so we are very well positioned," Marko asserted. 

"But of course, whenever new regulations came in the past, it was usually Adrian who understood it optimally."

As the F1 season progresses, with the Miami Grand Prix set to host its sixth race, the future absence of Newey's influence leaves a notable void in Red Bull Racing's pursuit of further success. 

The upcoming Sprint Race event at the Miami International Autodrome presents a fresh challenge for teams and drivers alike, marking another chapter in the ongoing narrative of Formula 1.
