Red Bull boss Horner visited Ferrari at Maranello

Christian Horner with Adrian NeweyRumours Red Bull team boss Christian Horner recently visited Maranello emerged on Wednesday.

The German website motorsport-total.com reported leaks about the Briton’s secret Ferrari visit have been made to the Italian media.

The report said Horner met with Ferrari’s head of human resources, Mario Mairano, probably last month.

“The thought is that this is an attempt to indirectly gain access to the services of star designer Adrian Newey,” wrote journalist Christian Nimmervoll.

It is believed Horner and Newey always sign and renew their Red Bull contracts together.

Horner, understood to have a Red Bull contract until at least 2014, has also been previously linked to Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali’s job.

    Newey has stated many times he is not going to go to Ferrari. Horner & Newey to Ferrari why would they Red Bull pays big bucks to keep the team together unless Marko has decided they are both to retire.

    Put an outsider other than an Italian in scuderia then Ferrari will be back to their glory days. And that is the fact.

    The problem with Red Bull is simply Helmut Marko – honestly who the hell would want to work under such a total toss pot that puts down drivers (Webber) and the rest of the team before the season has started, all the while creating an awkward atmosphere for everyone?

    @Wardski:
    Helmut Marko is the biggest crack pot in F1 I am sure he isn’t even human I wonder if he was purchased from planet Zanussi but then I realized that would be a big insult to Zanussi

    @McLarenfan: Newey always wanted to work for Ferrari since mid ’90s, the problem has always been his wife who didn’t want to relocate in Italy but now I think he divorced so….btw it could be a new beginning for him and if he ‘ll win with Ferrari after what he’s done with his previous teams he ‘ll always be remembered as the greatest mind the Formula 1 has ever seen.

    @Luca
    Couldn’t have said it better myself. It’s an honor and a privilege to work for Ferrari and I’m sure that Newey wants to work with Ferrari as well, the only problem was his bitchy wife.

    Ferrari need to dump Alonso.
