Adrian Newey has declined to confirm or deny rumours he is looking to leave Red Bull. Rumours suggest the famous F1 designer is contemplating an offer from Renault to join the French marque at the end of his current contract later this year.

"I still work with Red Bull and, through the partnership with Aston Martin, them as well," he is quoted by Russia's Championat as saying at Le Mans.

Newey's son Harrison competed at Le Mans for the Russian team SMP. "I'm at Le Mans with my son, who is with SMP Racing, and I have nothing more to say for now," Newey added.

  • What does Honda have to do with this story? Its a text about a possible Renault switch, which I find pretty unlikely (IMO Renault's sole advantage is that they are a works team). Not impossible, but unlikely.

      I don't see the point why they would leave to Honda. With Renault they're sure they can win races and maybe a championship this year..

    • We font know how long Renault will be better than Honda though. At this rate I think Honda could overtake them before the end of this season.

    • What I meant was that this article is referring to a possible switch for Newey to Renault. So Honda isnt really related to this article.

      Its called spinning the story to one's likeness. Might as well could be 'deduced' that, Newey didn't confirm the moon landing.
