We are still with Red Bull Racing Formula One team. In 2005, Adrian Newey was brought to the team by the principal himself. He became the team’s Chief Technical Officer and started to work in 2006. His main job is to design a super Gran Prix car. And today, he is a world-renowned F1 aerodynamicist.

Newey first started designing a Formula 1 car with March/Leyton House in 1988. Then he moved to Williams in 1991. His career went on with McLaren in 1997. During that period of time, McLaren was arguably the fastest car of Grand Prix race track.

And Newey tried to race himself. In 2007, he joined the 24 Hours of Le Mans race with AF Corse Ferrari team. Alongside his two co-drivers, he managed to finish fourth in class.

He has been dreaming about building a road car. And now he is the brain of the Aston Martin – Red Bull Racing project. This side project will only make him richer than the $10 million estimated net worth he has bagged. You can read more about the Aston Martin HyperCar AM-RB 001 on this article.

Newey is going to play an important part in 2017 season of F1 since it is going to be all about aerodynamic. Will we see a resurrection of Red Bull Racing’s dominance?
