Adrian Newey, OBE

lead car design engineer for red bull f1 team

Having established that sound engineering wasn’t his forte when he was expelled from school for blowing out a stained glass window after a sound check, Adrian Newey found his calling as a car design engineer, helping his father build the Elans from kits.  He says, “I was determined to study engineering with an aspiration to find work in the drawing office of a motor racing team”.  Now Formula One’s principal designer, he is the lead car design engineer for the Red Bull F1 team with his last four cars winning the world championship. He is undoubtedly the ultimate technical mind and the most successful designer of this racing generation, and in 2012 was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the New Year’s Honours for services to motorsport.
