Van der Garde: Vasseur already has Adrian Newey

According to reports, the Italian team are also interested in signing lauded F1 designer Adrian Newey after he announced his impending departure from Red Bull, although reports that an agreement has already been reached have been denied by Newey’s manager Eddie Jordan, with one pundit hinting that the deal is already done.

Speaking on Viaplay, former F1 driver Giedo van der Garde counted Newey as one of Vasseur’s key additions.

“What [Vasseur] has done for Ferrari in recent years is very impressive,” said van der Garde.

“Strategically he has put in different people, and he has linked a new [race] engineer to Leclerc. He won right away [in Monaco last weekend]. He has attracted other people to the team, and he has Adrian Newey.

“He has brought in people from Mercedes, like Loïc Serra, who is very good. You can really see that the team is becoming more professional and that he is putting the right people in the right places.

“They are getting one step closer, and don’t forget that they won a race with both drivers this year.”
