Horner and Newey Part Ways on Good Terms: A Look Inside the Red Bull Shake-Up



"Friendship still strong" – Christian Horner denies causing Adrian Newey's departure

Christian Horner asserts that his relationship with Adrian Newey is still positive, even after Newey decided to leave Red Bull.

Christian Horner maintains that he is not responsible for Adrian Newey leaving the Red Bull Formula 1 team.

Newey, celebrated as the most accomplished designer in F1 history, is set to depart from his role as the chief technical officer at Red Bull in early 2025, following an almost twenty-year tenure with the squad.

At the age of 65, he managed to secure an early termination of his contract with Red Bull, thanks to the assistance of his close friend and manager, Eddie Jordan.

Newey is thought to have grown disenchanted due to unrest in the Red Bull team following accusations from a female colleague of sexual harassment and manipulative, dominating conduct directed at team principal Horner.

Horner has consistently refuted the allegations and was exonerated from any misconduct following an internal review conducted by Red Bull.

Nevertheless, Horner has emphasized that the debate surrounding him played no role in Newey's choice to depart.

"Horner mentioned that after having an extensive discussion with Adrian, Adrian’s stance on the matter is unequivocally stated."

"Our relationship has been wonderful, and it remains so. As both friends and coworkers, he has contributed significantly to our team's success.

"It will be a sorrowful goodbye, but he has positioned the team well for the future. With a solid lineup and depth in our ranks, we are poised for continued success."

Horner remarked, "In conversations with Adrian and based on his recent announcements, Adrian has concluded that now is the right moment for him to step back, especially after a lengthy tenure of nearly 35 years with the team, given the robust engineering team and the depth of expertise we currently have."

"We were aware that the moment would arrive, and we've established a framework to ensure we could take over and continue the work. This is an initiative that has been developed over the past five to six years."

In a conversation with Sky Sports F1 during the Miami Grand Prix, Newey seemed to hint at the controversy involving Horner, mentioning, "Over the winter, it crossed my mind occasionally, and as things have developed this year, it occurred to me… I'm fortunate enough not to have to work for a living. My motivation for working is purely out of passion.

"I simply sensed it was the right moment to pause, reflect on life, and spend some time exploring."

However, Horner maintains that the duo continues to have a positive relationship.

"Horner expressed, "There have been numerous memorable experiences with Adrian, both in our professional and personal lives. It's been an incredible adventure alongside him. He's not just a colleague but also a close friend and the godfather to my kids, and our friendship continues."

Newey is rumored to be strongly considering a move to Ferrari, where he would team up with seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton.
