Pau1inel: Pity he didn't say 'it'd be like walking away from your long term partner and new baby' .......... Christian Horner could have offered him advice on that front. (Ouch!!!!)

LOL, Maybe if it had been a Spice Girl rather than Ferrari that made him an offer he'd do a Christian and leg it!

I don't get it, you wouldn't forgive a guy for thinking of wanting to walk out on his wife, or you will not forgive him for walking out on his wife? Please clarify.
Probably just you George

Sounds just like what couples in hollywood have said right before they split up. One can never know all of the circumstances involved in a high profile split but it can ( in racing circumstances) usually be attributed to money, the ability for the existing team to field winning machinery, personal grievance within the team, or the person in question just wants room to operate freely with growth potential AKA a winning team.

Ferrari made Adrian Newey a great offer. If I were Newey, I would have taken a long hard look at Ferrari's offer. It certainly looks too good to be refused. Then I would see that Ferrari is not letting Kimi race to win, only to stay behind FA. Adrian worked with Kimi at McLaren and he knows how good Kimi is. Then Adrian would understand that if FA did not win the WDC with Adrian's aero design, that Ferrari would throw him under the bus rather than let Kimi win and show how good his design is. Luca would go on saying that Ferrari has to build a car good enough for FA. Adrian is too smart to throw away his career in that quagmire. Ferrari's first concern is not winning.
