Adrian Newey expects to join ANOTHER F1 team after his Red Bull exit... as the legendary designer opens up on why he 'is seriously considering' a move elsewhere

Adrian Newey's exit from Red Bull was officially confirmed earlier this month The 65-year-old designer opened up on his decision and plans for the future  'Never say never!': McLaren's Zak Brown refused to rule out a move for Newey

Adrian Newey has admitted for the first time that he expects to join another Formula One team following his departure from Red Bull.

Newey's decision to leave the reigning world champions was officially announced earlier this month, with the 65-year-old calling time on his 19-year stint as Red Bull's chief technical officer.

During an interview for Oyster Yachts with his manager Eddie Jordan, the legendary designer revealed that he is 'seriously considering' a move to another Formula One team after he leaves the Red Bull group in the first quarter of 2025.

'If you'd asked me 15 years ago, at the age of 65,  whether I would be seriously considering changing teams, going somewhere else and doing another four, five years or whatever, I'd have said you were absolutely mad,' he said.

'But a few things have happened at once. My father, a huge car enthusiast who used to tinker around with his cars and play with them - which is where things rubbed off on me, semi-retired when he was 62 and fully retired at 65. And to be honest, it's slightly emotional to say it, but he kind of lost his way.

'I also asked two of the people I respect the most - Bernie (Ecclestone) and Roger Penske - what their secret is (for staying strong and healthy after retirement) and they both said that old thing that the brain is like a muscle and needs exercise.

'I've wanted to work in motor racing as a designer since I was the age of eight or 10. I am lucky to have fulfilled that ambition, to have got that first job and been in motor racing ever since,

'Every day is just a bonus really. I love what I do.

'At some point I guess I will have a bit of a holiday. But as Forrest Gump said at the end of his long run, I feel a little bit tired at the moment but at some point I will probably go again.'

Newey has played a significant role in 13 drivers' world championships and a dozen constructors' titles with Williams, McLaren and Red Bull.

Following Newey's decision to leave Red Bull, McLaren principal Zak Brown replied 'never say never' when asked about the prospect of recruiting the veteran.

Meanwhile, Williams chief James Vowles admitted he had a 'light conversation' with Newey after approaching the designer over a potential move in the future.

Newey, who negotiated an early exit from Red Bull, is permitted to begin work with another Formula One team from early 2025.

Newey's exit is believed to have stemmed partially from the controversy surrounding Red Bull chief Christian Horner, who was accused of coercive behaviour towards a female colleague

The 65-year-old's exit is believed to have stemmed partially from the controversy surrounding Red Bull principal Christian Horner, who was accused of coercive behaviour towards a female employee.

Horner, who has persistently denied the allegations, was initially cleared of wrongdoing by Red Bull following an internal investigation, but a second probe is ongoing after the complainant appealed the decision.

Newey added: 'To walk away from Red Bull was a very hard decision but it was one I needed to take for a whole host of reasons. They had been my family.

'I never really thought it would be big news so for it to be in all the flipping papers and on the telly was almost a bit of a shock.'
