Adrian Newey and Ferrari, a partnership that never took place. Despite the temptation to work for the Prancing Horse being high over the years, in the end, the engineer chose to stay with Red Bull.
Everything could change after the recent upheaval that hit the Austrian team. The situation of Christian Horner, which we are all constantly following, could shake things up.
The position of the team principal is at risk, and Adrian Newey’s fate would be entirely to be rewritten. Perhaps by starting a new chapter in red. In any case, even the wife of the aerodynamics genius, Amanda Smerczak, agrees on the matter.
Many users on X.com noticed a “like” from Mrs. Newey on a post written by a user, which caught social media attention.
“Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton in Ferrari with a car by Adrian Newey would be one of the craziest things to see in Formula 1,” wrote this user. “And the FIA would find 50 different ways to make it illegal.” The comment is a reference to another post, in which another profile had written, “It’s time to get rid of these regrets, Adrian,” referring to the arrival of Lewis Hamilton at Ferrari.
Adrian Newey’s wife then removed the like from this post, which no longer appears on her account. However, X users were still able to save it.
The social media clue is, of course, to be taken with caution. Liking something on social media does not necessarily mean it will happen. Several users argue that Mrs. Newey is very active on social media, often liking comments related to her husband and the work he does at Red Bull.
