Adrian Newey has hinted his time in formula one may be coming to an end. As Sebastian Vettel prepares to drive his Newey-penned Red Bull to an easy fourth consecutive world championship in India this weekend, the designer of his car admitted his eyes may be wandering elsewhere.

"I'm 54 now," Newey told the Telegraph, "and there are lots of other things I would like to be involved in. "Maybe the America's Cup, who knows?" added Briton Newey, recognised as perhaps the greatest F1 designer of all time.

But he played down the prospect he will move his sights to designing a competitive yacht in the very near future. "It's a bit too late (for 2014) isn't it?" he said. "My immediate future lies in formula one. I'm fully committed to next year and the new regs."

Telegraph correspondent Tom Cary speculated that Red Bull magnate Dietrich Mateschitz might want to put together his own America's Cup team, with Newey at the drawing board. "Maybe," Newey answered. "It's not something I have spent a lot of time talking to Dietrich about I'm afraid." (GMM)
