What is Newey's next move?

If he does join Ferrari, he will accompany seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, who has already expressed an interest in working alongside Adrian Newey.

When asked about the possibility, the Brit said it would be a ‘privilege’ to work with the engineer, and that he would ‘very much’ like to see him at Ferrari next year.

There have also been reports Aston Martin are interested in signing Newey to the team, and that their team owner Lawrence Stroll has offered him a lucrative deal.

Alternatively, he could focus on projects outside of F1, remaining within the Red Bull family to work on their hypercar.

Team principal Christian Horner has revealed where he thinks his colleague will do when he leaves Red Bull.

Horner reveals Newey's next move

"I think he's going to take some time out first. He's 65 years of age and I think he's earned that right to have a bit of time out, spend some time with his wife and family,” Horner said to Sky Sports.

"That's what he's very keen to do. If he decides he wants to have another run at F1, who knows? The ironic thing is, Adrian has always hated every single regulation change.

"2026 is a unique one because it's both chassis and engine regulations. It's a very different world these days with the cost cap and the restrictions we have on resource."
