Aston Martin makes big bucks move for Red Bull’s Newey!


Aston Martin has reportedly unleashed a lucrative contract offer aimed at securing the services of Red Bull F1 design genius Adrian Newey.

Newey, widely regarded as one of the sport's most brilliant minds, has been instrumental in Red Bull's championship success in F1 over the years.

His technical prowess played a pivotal role in Sebastian Vettel’s dominance between 2010 and 2013 and more recently during the reign of Max Verstappen.

According to a report from, Aston Martin team owner Lawrence Stroll has upped the ante in Formula 1’s high-stakes game of chess and set his sights on poaching Newey from Red Bull.

It is believed that a concrete offer was made to Newey during the Saudi Arabian GP weekend earlier this month.

Stroll's vision is clear: build a team capable of challenging the established elite – Red Bull, Mercedes, and Ferrari. His efforts have been multi-pronged. A state-of-the-art headquarters was completed last year, while a wind tunnel is on the horizon, and key technical personnel have been lured from rival teams.

Additionally, securing a works Honda deal for F1’s 2026 regulations era shows a commitment to cutting-edge technology.

But poaching Newey could be the game-changer that Stroll is looking for, the elusive element completing the Silverstone-based outfit’s master plan.

Such a move could also serve as an irresistible lure for Max Verstappen, already courted by Mercedes.

However, Newey has a history of loyalty. Multiple attempts by Ferrari to pry him away from Red Bull have always failed.

But the power struggle currently simmering at Milton Keynes between team boss Christian Horner and Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmet Marko, with the latter fully supported by the Verstappen family, could entice Newey to choose his camp.

Whether Aston Martin's offer will be enough to overcome Newey's loyalty and Red Bull's internal issues remains to be seen. But one thing's for sure: this move, should it happen, would likely alter the landscape of Formula 1 for years to come.
