Newey, who has served as Red Bull's chief technical officer since 2006 and massively responsible for the team’s 117 race wins, 272 podiums, seven drivers titles and six constructors titles, will gradually transition away from his Formula 1 design responsibilities throughout the current year.

During his tenure at Red Bull, Newey played a pivotal role in transforming the team from a newcomer to a dominant force in Formula 1, securing multiple drivers' and constructors' championship titles.


Speculation surrounding Newey's departure had been rife for some time, fueled by a mix of long-standing points of contention and recent disagreements within the organisation. Concerns regarding the valuation of his contributions and reluctance to be sidelined from Formula 1 to focus on the RB17 hypercar project are among the factors cited for his decision to part ways.

In a statement, Newey expressed gratitude to the Red Bull team and shareholders for their support, affirming his confidence in the engineering team's preparedness for the RB17's final evolution under the current regulation set.
