Ferrari not giving up on Newey

Adrian Newey

Ferrari has not given up on wooing Adrian Newey to Maranello.

That is the claim of the authoritative Italian daily La Gazzetta dello Sport, whose correspondent Luigi Perna outlined the latest plan to sign Red Bull‘s highly-coveted technical boss.

In Monaco, Red Bull rejected the speculation about Newey by insisting the 55-year-old remains committed for “the foreseeable future”.

But that may have been before Ferrari’s latest audacious offer to the Briton.

Perna said Ferrari is offering Newey unprecedented technical freedom, and also his own road-going supercar project and involvement in a possible Le Mans prototype bid.

Not to mention annual pay of about EUR 20 million.

“If the odds at first were zero, now the odds are 20-30 per cent,” read the report. “It all depends on Newey.”

It has also been claimed that signing Newey might convince Red Bull’s quadruple world champion Sebastian Vettel to join him at Maranello.

But German Vettel said on Tuesday: “I feel very good about where I am and have so much to thank my team for.”

“You don’t just throw in the towel and look for something else after six bad races,” he insisted.

Curiously, Vettel was at the wheel of Gerhard Berger‘s 1988 Ferrari on Tuesday for a promotional event at the forthcoming Austrian grand prix venue.

He got out of the car and said “Incredibile!” — the Italian version of incredible.

Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko grinned to reporters: “You can let our friends know quietly in Maranello that Sebastian even drives his Ferraris with us.”
