Newey denies that he is only part-time worker for Red Bull

Adrian NeweyNov.24 (GMM) Red Bull chief technical officer Adrian Newey has denied rumours he only works four days a week for the energy drinks owned team.

“I wish!” world champion Red Bull’s car designer, and undoubtedly the most highly respected technical figure in F1, told the Spanish newspaper El Pais.

“That’s a rumour I’ve heard more and more but it’s obviously false,” said Newey.

“Unfortunately I’m working harder than ever and I think that’s just the times we live in.

“We have so much data at our disposal and we spend a lot of time analysing it all.

“I’d love to be in the factory only four days [a week], but I’m not,” he insisted.
