Adrian Newey is staying at Red Bull, even though the former title-winning team has appointed a new technical director. France’s L’Equipe reported that Frenchman Pierre Wache has been appointed Red Bull’s technical boss.
But Newey, one of F1’s most famous and successful designers, is staying as chief technology officer. Wache, who already had a prominent technical role, confirmed: “Adrian always focused more on aerodynamics, while I try to put the power to the road.”
He said he understands that the technical director role is a high pressure one. “I understand what this post means, and the risks. It doesn’t frighten me, but I understand that results are expected.
