In the Beyond The Grid podcast, Red Bull technical director Adrian Newey said he would have liked to work with Ferrari, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, but circumstances turned out differently…
Adrian Newey: “Ferrari has approached me several times. First in 1993, when I worked in IndyCar, but this can be ignored, and in 2014, which is known to everyone.
In 1993, Jean Todt had just started working at Ferrari. I remember him asking if he should hire Michael Schumacher. Do you think this was a good idea?
My negotiations with Ferrari in 2014 were fueled by disappointment. I didn’t want to leave Red Bull, but we were in a situation where Renault couldn’t create a competitive hybrid powertrain.
To some extent I regret refusing to work with Ferrari. I would also love to work with Fernando and Lewis; it would be great. But that didn’t happen. Sometimes things work out that way.”
