OFFICIAL: Adrian Newey will leave Red Bull in April 2025

Adrian Newey will leave Red Bull in April 2025. Until then, the British engineer, current technical chief of the Austrian firm, will take a step back from his duties in Formula 1. Until his departure, he will focus on the final development and delivery of the Hypercar RB17.

After a memorable alliance of almost 20 seasons, Newey will end his career at Red Bull in less than a year. The Briton will leave the energy drink brand in April 2025 and until then, he will take a step back from his duties in Formula 1. His main concern will be the final phase of the development of the RB17, the Austrians’ first Hypercar, and its subsequent delivery.

Since Newey joined the team at the end of 2006 as technical director, Red Bull has achieved an incredible 117 wins and 100 pole positions. It has been a memorable journey for the Briton, who is facing his final months in Milton Keynes. Now, he only has words of gratitude towards the energy drink brand.

“Since I was a young boy, I wanted to design fast cars. My dream was to be a Formula 1 engineer and I have been lucky enough to make it come true. For almost two decades, It has been a great honor to have played a key role in the progress of Red Bull to become a champion team. Now, I feel it is the right time to seek new challenges,” Newey said in an official statement.

“Until now, We have ahead of us the last phases of the development of the RB17, so, for the rest of my time with the team, my focus will be there. I would like to thank all the amazing people I have worked with over these last 18 years for their talent, dedication and hard work. “It has been a great privilege and I am sure that the engineering team is prepared for the final evolution of the car to this regulation,” he adds.

For his part, Red Bull team manager Christian Horner also takes advantage of this moment to congratulate Newey for his incredible work and thank him for his immense dedication. It is the end of a stage for the energy drink brand, as they say goodbye to his great technical figure after 18 years.

“All our great moments of the last 20 years, They come from the hand of Adrian as our technical figure. His vision and brilliance have helped us achieve 13 titles in the last 20 seasons. “His exceptional ability to conceptualize, his incredible talent for challenges and finding the best areas in the regulations have helped Red Bull become a force that even Dietrich Mateschitz himself might not have imagined,” he explained.

“For me, when Adrian came to Red Bull, for me he was a design star. Two decades and 13 titles later, he leaves as a legend. He is also my friend and someone to whom I will be eternally grateful for everything he has given us in this union. The legacy he leaves behind goes beyond the borders of Milton Keynes and the RB17 will be the last piece of his time with us,” Horner acknowledged in conclusion.
