Designer Newey committed to Red Bull, not Ferrari

MONACO (AP) – Leading designer Adrian Newey has reaffirmed his commitment to Red Bull amid speculation that Formula One rival Ferrari could try to sign him.

Speculation surfaced at the Spanish Grand Prix that struggling Ferrari might be looking to poach the sport’s most highly-rated technician.

Newey, the designer behind Red Bull’s series of championship-winning cars, did little to quell the speculation in Barcelona, saying "I need to think about it. At some point I am going to have to think about the future."

Newey has sought to clarify his position, saying "I remain committed to Red Bull for the foreseeable future."

The 55-year-old Newey has a long history of success in the sport, dating back to Williams’ domination in the 1990s.
