New F1 rules to re-fire Newey spark – Marko

Looming rule changes could re-fire Adrian Newey’s motivation to work in formula one.

With Red Bull’s famous but disgruntled car designer having lifted the throttle on F1 in order to concentrate on other projects, he was recently linked with a role at the F3 team Van Amersfoort to support his teenage son Harrison.

Red Bull official Dr Helmut Marko denies that.

“That has been clarified already,” he told Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport. “The Van Amersfoort team has denied it.”

Newey is, however, definitely already working with renowned sailor Ben Ainslie on his America’s Cup project.

“We have a gliding contract with him,” Marko explained. “Depending on requirements, he devotes his time to formula one or to other activities. At the moment it’s about 50-50.”

But he said that percentage could change now that the sport has acknowledged the need to introduce significantly faster and more aggressive cars and engines for 2017 or 2018.

“Adrian worked a lot on the car this year,” Marko insisted, “but not with the same 100 per cent bite as before — he knew that we would not win, no matter what he did.

“But now with the new chassis rules, he has tasted blood once again.”
