F1 » 'Overcome' Newey gives himself 'a fright' with new RBR gift

Red Bull Racing chief technical officer Adrian Newey now has something a bit better than a lawnmower to rip up his rear garden with - after his team presented him with one of last year's RB5s as a gift at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed

WHAT A GREAT GIFT!!!!! AND WELL DESERVED!!!!!! LOOKS LIKE IT COMES WITH THE ENGINE AND SPARES!!!!!! Before I die I will make it to the Goodwood festival!

PS Remember the story about Button and the possible lawsuit concerning his asking for one of the Brawn GP cars.(IT WAS IN HIS CONTRACT) HMMMMMMMM......A lot of good PR going on at Red Bull. Thats good Karma. Stick with it boys and "IT" will be yours. :)

Adrian should see a doctor as soon as possible. It looks to me like he has a knot growing out of his head that resembles a hand with a finger sticking out of it!!!!!!! :p :)

PS That one was for you Mike!!! :D

@richard, Lucky you!!!!!! I had the privilege of flying in a B-17 as well as a B-24. Both piloted by men who flew during WW2. Both flew in the European theater as well. Great guys. LOL Ed :)

PS Have a ball!!!!!!!!

PPS The B-25 was a great machine. Later in the war it became a hell of a destroyer with all of its forward 50 cals as well as rocket mounts. Not sure what he has there! :)

What is it with this finger pointing German nonsense, I've even noticed they have started to do it in the German football team - funny I've only got one finger to give back and it's the middle one !!

If pointing your index finger is the key to success then keep on pointing it. The German football club looks great. My money is on them. Not a bunch of overpayed premadonna's like a "certain" team!!!! :p :) Ed

PS And it was not the US. :-o

Eddie, you will probably see this tomorrow as somebody should have put you to bed by now.
Re the B17/B24 all you seem you can talk about/ gets impressed with is 50 calibre mounts/ rocket mounts/ guns/ ammunition/ bullets/ bombs/ and fireworks, what about those four Wright R-1820 Cyclones at 1200/1400hp with exhaust driven turbosupercharger?
