F1 LIVE: Red Bull man regrets not joining Ferrari as Daniel Ricciardo suffers setback | F1 | Sport

Red Bull’s legendary aerodynamicist Adrian Newey has revealed some regret about not joining Ferrari after talks between the two parties occurred in 1994 and 2014.

Asked if there was any regret on the Beyond the Grid podcast, Newey replied: “Emotionally I guess to a point, yes. But, just as for instance working with Fernando or Lewis would have been fabulous, but it never happened. It’s just circumstances sometimes and that’s the way it is.

“My discussions for 2014 with Ferrari, were purely out of frustration that…joined Red Bull, it was Christian [Horner, team principal] being centrally involved more or less from the start in developing it, for me.

“It’s a huge career gamble going from McLaren, this championship-winning team to this start-up kind of joke-of-the-pit-lane team, which it was at the time.”
