A new era beckons
"Newey and the others who will be involved in this project – and I’d be looking to bring in ex-Mercedes engine boss Andy Cowell – would be able to contribute directly to the new power unit specification", Anderson told The Race.
As Newey tries to put a size-12 foot in a size-10 shoe, Anderson sees the same thing happening with Red Bull's next generation of cars. "Gone are the days of simply doing the best deal you can with an engine manufacturer and bolting it to the back of your chassis", Anderson continued.
Very serious combination
According to Anderson, having full input is every technical director's dream. "Adrian will thrive on that new-found freedom. A well-funded Red Bull engine project for the next-generation power unit with a revitalised Newey is a combination that F1 would have to take very seriously."
