Verstappen’s Future at Red Bull Unaffected by Newey’s Departure, Insists Horner



Red Bull confirms that Max Verstappen's Formula 1 contract does not include an exit option tied to Adrian Newey.

Christian Horner, the team principal of Red Bull F1, firmly states that Max Verstappen's contract does not contain a departure clause connected to Adrian Newey's potential exit.

Ahead of the Miami Grand Prix happening this weekend, Red Bull announced that Newey, recognized as the top car designer in F1 history, is set to depart from the team in early 2025, concluding a nearly 20-year tenure.

The explosive revelation has sparked inquiries about its potential effects on Verstappen's career, which has been heavily speculated about following the controversy involving Horner.

Horner has emphasized that Verstappen, who is on track to clinch his fourth world championship title this year, is content with his position at Red Bull.

"Horner responded to Sky's inquiries about Verstappen potentially leaving by saying, 'You mention those whispers every week, yet he remains with us.'"

Max is extremely content with his team, surrounded by a fantastic assembly of engineers. He's behind the wheel of the most superior car available and is performing at the peak of his career.

"The focus isn't on agreements. It's about satisfaction, and I believe that applies to all drivers. He possesses that quality. He has that atmosphere surrounding him, and what we're witnessing is a driver who is thriving in that setting."

Sources indicate that there's a provision in Verstappen's agreement enabling him to seek free agency if Helmut Marko were to depart from Red Bull, with parallel claims also made regarding Newey.

However, Horner clarified that this situation does not apply, responding to inquiries about whether the Dutch driver possesses a "key man exit clause" in his existing contract connected to Newey.

"Horner mentioned that the details of Max's contract will be kept private, however, he confirmed that there are no provisions connecting Adrian to Max in any manner."

"Over the years, they've maintained a positive relationship, similar to our past drivers, but Max is also aware that there has been a strategic plan in place."

"The decision doesn't mean an immediate overhaul, so the organization's framework will remain intact despite Adrian's withdrawal."

On Thursday, Verstappen expressed his comprehension of Newey's choice to depart from Red Bull, even though he had expressed his desire for him to remain.

"Obviously, my preference was for Adrian to remain. That's exactly what I communicated to Adrian," he shared with Sky.

It's crucial to prioritize your own interests because, ultimately, Formula 1 can be quite a cutthroat environment. It's essential to consider your well-being, making choices that are beneficial for you and your loved ones.

"Therefore, I hold no grudges against him. If a person wishes to move on, they should chase new aspirations or ventures in life. And that's perfectly okay."
