Adrian Newey has been the genius behind the Red Bull domination. Since 2005, the Austrian outfit has won the most number of races. They have been part of Formula 1 since 2005 itself. However, the domination of the Milton Keynes team started in 2010 and continued till 2013. That was the first stint of their hegemony. It was the time when Sebastian Vettel went on to secure four titles in a row. However, when regulations changed in 2014, there was a shift in hegemony, as Mercedes went on to rule the grid for eight straight years.

Then, in 2022, the power shifted back to Red Bull as the regulations changed again and introduced the ground effect and cost cap rules. Clearly, the change in regulations helped the Red Bull team the most since 2022. But without the magnificent car designs by Adrian Newey, the Milton Keynes team would not have been so successful. Last year, RB19 proved that it is one of the fastest F1 cars of all time. Lately, there have been rumors that Newey will leave the Austrian outfit next year.

Since Newey has been part of F1, starting back in the 1990s, there have been opportunities when he could join the Prancing Horse. Moreover, in his book, Adrian Newey suggested that he has a desire to work with Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari. Perhaps the 65 year old genius car designer can achieve that goal in 2025. 

Currently, Newey earns a salary of 10 million pounds at the Austrian outfit. He has been an asset for the Red Bull F1 team for over a decade. However, the Newey-Red Bull era seems to come to an end soon. Perhaps, his next destination is Bologna, Italy. According to certain sources, Ferrari and Newey already had serious discussions on a possible contract.
