Mark Webber believes that team’s chief technical officer Adrian Newey has played a crucial role in Red Bull’s consecutive achievement. Newey joined Red Bull Racing in February 2006, Sebastian Vettel took three straight drivers’ world title since 2010 with Newey designed car.
In 2011 Vettel dominated entire race with RB7, but in 2012 opening few races Red Bull struggled with their designing concept, following Newey kept on making vital efforts and he develop a competitive car finally Vettel took his third successive title.
The Australian veteran Mark Webber set sixth place on the drivers’ title in this season with two top podium finishes. Webber and Vettel stay as team-mates for 2013 following spending the past four years mutually at Red Bull.
“We need, behind all the smoke and mirrors of a Formula 1 team, to make a racing car as quick as possible to do the business in qualifying and the races.” Webber told Autosport.
“Adrian never loses sight of that and he’s a huge influence. You have him beating the drum and generally being a big beacon for the team here in terms of design and philosophy of where the car needs to be. You need that to be successful here.”
“And when you start getting some success as well things change so quickly. Things becomes much easier.” He added.
