Newey set to stay on with Red Bull

Adrian Newey set to stay with Red Bull Racing after clause that would have allowed him to leave is removed from his contract
Adrian Newey is set to stay on at Red Bull Racing having removed a clause in his contract that would have allowed him to quit at the end of 2010.

Newey joined Red Bull from McLaren at the start of the 2006 season but his contract stated that he would be able to leave if he wanted to at the end of the current campaign.

However, Germany's Sport Bild reported that Newey has elected to stay on with the team into 2011 and beyond, with team boss Christian Horner revealing that the clause has been removed from the chief technical officer's deal.

“Contractual matters are confidential, but it's true,” he said. “Last year, Adrian requested to remove a clause that would have ended his contract this year.”

Newey has been widely credited with Red Bull's current success thanks to his work on designing the RB6 that has carried Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel to a share of the points lead.

Obviously the Red Bull environment suits a lot better than McLaren, as far as I remember he wanted to leave the sport when he finished up at McLaren. Bad news for everyone else, his ability to interpret new rules and design a solution round them are formidable. He is a genius.
