James Allison replaces Adrian Newey at Red Bull?

James Allison, the highly-rated Formula 1 engineer who departed from Ferrari following the sudden death of his wife Rebecca to meningitis earlier this year and is believed to be keen to move back to the UK to be near his children. Now he is being linked with a future at Red Bull Racing.

Allison has worked for Ferrari in two separate stints and rejoined the Scuderia from Lotus three years ago.

Allison could move to Red Bull Racing for 2018 as an eventual replacement for design guru Adrian Newey, who currently involved in Aston Martin hyper car project.

A perfect move will happen at Red Bull, because Newey has been working less than full time on the Red Bull F1 car so Milton Keynes outfit would be keen to secure a talent such as Allison for the future.

Respected journalist Michael Schmidt adds that Allison, for his part, has already been courted by several teams following his exit from Ferrari. These include Renault, McLaren, and Red Bull where Newey is only involved part-time on the F1 programme.

Other significant moves – Toro Rosso technical director James Key is in line to replace Pat Symonds when the Williams chief technical officer retires at the end of the 2017.
