Perez: Newey will have “immediate impact” at next F1 team

Red Bull’s announcement of Adrian Newey’s departure in 2025 has sparked speculation about his next move, with Ferrari and Aston Martin emerging as potential destinations for the renowned British designer.

Sergio Perez, speaking at the Miami Grand Prix pre-event press conference, expressed confidence that wherever Newey goes, he will quickly make a positive impact across various aspects of the Formula 1 team. Perez emphasized Newey’s broad influence beyond mere design, citing his ability to shape strategies and influence setups during race weekends.

While acknowledging the disappointment of Newey’s impending exit, Perez remains optimistic about Red Bull’s future competitiveness. Despite Newey’s significant contributions over his two-decade tenure, Perez believes the team, led by figures like Pierre Wache, Enrico Balbo, and Ben Waterhouse, possesses the strength and depth to maintain its position at the forefront of F1.

Perez highlights the collective strength of Red Bull’s aero group and credits team principal Christian Horner for preparing for the transition post-Newey.

Perez also downplays concerns about a broader exodus from Red Bull following Newey’s departure. The team has faced scrutiny over the futures of key management members, including Horner and Helmut Marko.

Horner was cleared of allegations of inappropriate behavior, while Marko’s position was reportedly under threat but ultimately remained secure following discussions with the team’s parent company boss, Oliver Mintzlaff. Despite this uncertainty, Perez expresses confidence in the team’s stability and commitment to success.

Amidst the speculation and potential changes within Red Bull, Perez remains focused on the present season and the promising future ahead for the team. He views the ongoing success of the team as evidence of its resilience and collective determination, downplaying concerns about further personnel changes. Perez’s remarks reflect a sense of continuity and confidence in Red Bull’s ability to navigate transitions and maintain its competitive edge in Formula 1.
