However, as per The Times, the aero wizard’s exit might not be the only one that Red Bull would have to deal with in 2024.

Red Bull team boss chimes in on Adrian Newey’s exit from the team

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner stated that it would be a ‘sad day’ for the world champions when Adrian Newey leaves the team next year.Speaking with Sky Sports F1, Horner said:

“He’s been hard at it the last 30 years… seven years with Williams, seven years with McLaren, and he’s done the best part of 20 years with ourselves. Just speaking with him, he’s reached a point where the team’s in great, great shape, we’re performing at such a high level, and he feels that now’s the right for him to step away, take a bit of time out.”

“Most of all, I’ll miss the camaraderie. We’ve shared a lot of highs and lows over the last 18 years, and he’s been sitting next to me on the pit wall throughout that time. We’ll be very sad to see him go, he’s been an immense part of our team over the last pretty much two decades.”

It would be interesting to see if the Austrian team could continue to succeed in the sport with key people leaving the organization so often in the past few years.
