Adrian Newey wasted no time upon his arrival at Red Bull Racing, immediately joining the team for their first test session of the year at the Jerez circuit.
Joining as Chief Technical Officer, Newey started work the day before the team’s 2006 challenger, the RB2, takes to the track for its second ever test session at the Jerez circuit in Spain.
“I’m going down to Jerez to spend some time with the team and to see the new car,” said Newey, as he unpacked his personal effects onto his shiny new desk (would you believe he still uses an old fashioned drawing board!) “It’ll be nice to escape England in January and to be back at a race track again. I’m also looking forward to hearing the sound of these new V8 engines for the first time.”
“On a serious note,” added Newey. “I expect to spend my initial period with the team observing how things are done here, getting to know people and finding my feet in this new environment. The technical team is very strong and has a good reputation, so my aim at the start will simply be to understand how Red Bull Racing operates.”
