Red Bull aero wizard Adrian Newey is likely to leave the Milton Keynes-based squad. Because of Newey's important work, Red Bull won seven driver's world championships and six teams' titles with Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen in the drivers' seats. According to the German newspaper Auto Motor und Sport, Newey is about to leave. Milton Keynes fans are speculating about Newey's future. Red Bull is going through a power struggle within the company, with groups backing team principal Christian Horner and groups led by advisor Helmut Marko. Allegations against Horner made things worse, hitting a peak at the start of the 2024 season, even though he had already been cleared. The drama around Horner and the way things work at Red Bull may have made Newey want to leave. Red Bull is having a good time right now with Max Verstappen and the RB20, but this new development could hurt them. Verstappen stresses how important it is to keep the team's key players, but it's still not clear if he has other plans in case Newey leaves.

If Adrian Newey were to leave Red Bull, no one would know what he would do next in his career. The respected aero expert was recently seen in Bologna, which led to rumours that he might have ties to high-profile teams like Ferrari. There are rumours that Lawrence Stroll may have made him a very good offer to join Aston Martin.

Toto Wolff, the team principal of Mercedes, has said that he would really like to have Christian Horner's prized asset, which adds to the mystery. However, Newey's 65-year-old future is unclear because of his years of experience and the great working conditions at Red Bull. It's not clear if other job offers from companies like Aston Martin, Mercedes, or Ferrari would be as appealing as the one he has now.

If Newey decides to make a shift, his level of commitment will be closely watched. Such a move would definitely change things in Formula 1, and it would be very hard for Red Bull, which is currently the champion of the track. F1 fans are looking forward to exciting times ahead as they wait to see how this possible change in the sport's dynamics plays out.
