Mercedes have been told they have no chance of ever attracting Adrian Newey to the team from Red Bull by former Formula 1 star David Coulthard.
Newey has an incredible reputation within the world of F1 as the aero genius behind some of the sport's most dominant race cars. He was part of the team who designed the successful Williams and McLaren cars of the 1990s before moving on to Red Bull after their inception in 2006.
He is credited with the design of the all-conquering RB19 which is currently terrorising the rest of the F1 grid, something which naturally makes him a target for other teams.
