Adrian Newey

For decades the Formula 1 racing track has been dominated by cars designed be Adrian Newey. He is currently the Chief Technical Officer of Red Bulls Technologies. Newey has worked for both Formula One and IndyCar Racing as an Engineer, aerodynamicist, designer and technical director. He has enjoyed tremendous success in both categories.

Newey has designed racing cars since the early 1980s. The first car designed by Newey was the March 82G GTP, under the direction of Robin Herd. It was a reworked BMW M1C aluminum monocoque and was powered by a 5.7 litre Chevy engine. Newey designed cars always an aerodynamic feature which lent the cars a unique shape and speed. The March 82G GTP won two IMSA GTP titles.

Newey moved on to Indy 500 and designed the March 85C. This design was popular with the teams and it won its second race. The CART Championship was won by a Newey design two years in a row. This was his last with Indy 500 and he joined the FORCE F1 Team.
After a brief stint with Newman-Haas race engineering Mario Andretti’s Hanna Car Wash Lola Newey moved back to March to design his first ever Formula 1 car.
The March 881 was the fastest normally aspirated car of the 1988 season and even finished on the Podium three times, a third position at the Belgian Grand Prix was followed by a second place in Portugal. The car was again raced in the following year and it again finished on the podium with a third place in Brazil.

His next design however was not as good as the first. After a few failures Newey went on to join the Williams team and designed the Williams FW14 and it won the World Championship Grand Prix at the 1991 Mexican Grand Prix with Riccardo Patrese at the wheel.
The Williams FW14 went on to be one of the most successful F1 cars ever, with seven wins in 1991 and ten in 1992.

A recent development in his career is his new contract with Red Bull Technologies. Although he will no longer be directly hands-on involved in the design of Race cars, he will be involved only as a mentor. Considering the recent changes in the regulations for Formula One Racing Car designs Newey himself agrees he won’t be able to keep up with these changes.
