The more I read and hear about Adrian Newey, the more I am in awe of him. He's like the Ben Lexcen of motor sport, but is far more level headed than Ben ever was.

I hear he wants to get into big yacht racing when he retires from F1. I expect he will be at the forefront of innovation in wind and fluid dynamics in that discipline too before its too long.

It's hard to believe how much influence one person can have in a team with a 100 mio. € budget and hundreds of engineers. But his success shows that it was him who made the difference wherever he was.
