  • Red Bull'S Christian Horner Still Has A 'Great Relationship' With Adrian Newey

Red Bull's Christian Horner still has a 'great relationship' with Adrian Newey

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has categorically denied any personal involvement in legendary designer Adrian Newey's decision to leave the team.

Newey, often hailed as F1's greatest-ever designer, is set to step down from his role as Red Bull's chief technical officer in early 2025, bringing an illustrious chapter to a close after nearly two decades of pioneering work with the team. 

Newey's departure comes amidst reports of internal turmoil within the Red Bull camp, including allegations of sexual harassment and coercive behavior against Horner by a female colleague.

In a strategic move facilitated by his close confidant and manager Eddie Jordan, Newey was able to negotiate an early release from his Red Bull contract, citing reasons that extend beyond personal disputes within the team. 

While the specifics of the 65-year-old's decision remain private, it is clear that his departure signifies a significant shift in Red Bull's technical leadership and strategic direction moving forward.

Despite the controversy surrounding Horner and the internal investigation conducted by Red Bull, which cleared him of any wrongdoing, the team principal has maintained that Newey's decision to leave is not linked to the allegations or the ensuing turmoil. 

"I've spoken to Adrian at length about it and Adrian's position is very clear," Horner said.

"We have enjoyed a great relationship, and we continue to enjoy a great relationship. We are friends as well as work colleagues and he's done a huge amount for this team.

"We will be sad to see him leave but he's left the team in good shape and we've got a great team of people and strength and depth to take us forward."
