He's proud of his work and his team's work. What's wrong with that? How does that make him 'full of himself'? he's never come across that way considering the guy is a genius.

What have you ever achieved?

He's enjoying the environment red bull are providing for him to do what he does, unlike a period of his time with mclaren. many other sports/industry sectors would love to have him, luckily for formula one and the fans (and the drivers who drive his cars) red bull are allowing him to enjoy his passion.

Being that good, he deserves the attention.

there is nothing wrong with that.

But being a profession where you produce things as a group , i would not classify him as a genius, but very brilliant ,yes.

blzbub. my sentiments exactly. rbr suits his laid back manner, and they allow him to develop his creative ideas. mclaren held him back, and that is why he left them.
enrico, i think that he is a GENIUS. he has designed more race winning cars/wdc cars than anybody else. he can think outside the box. can you name anybody who has performed better?

Adrian, is his own man. When the time is right he will move on to whatever takes his fancy on water track or whatever. In the meantime, I love the way he has raised the bar for the other designers to follow. He may be the only genius on the grid but inspiration doesn't need genius as a requirement.

victor. chapman was the closest, but he did not design for anyone else, nor did he have to contend with the modern rules, to find ways around them. further, chapman was obsessive and was also seriously flawed
