Red Bull Racing's chief technical officer Adrian Newey was presented with the Dino Toso award for the Racecar Aerodynamicist of the Year at the Race Tech World Motorsport Symposium this week.
Accepting the trophy from Soheila Kimberley, Race Tech's publishing director, at the awards dinner during the two-day conference, he gave special thanks to his team, particularly Peter Prodomou, head of aerodynamics.
"I am very pleased to accept this reward on behalf of everyone at Red Bull Racing, particularly Peter Prodromou, following our successful season in 2010,” Newey said. “It is especially pleasing to be honoured by one's peers."
Now in its sixth year, the Race Tech World Motorsport Symposium again attracted the 'highest level speakers and delegates from around the world', including Martin Whitmarsh, chairman of the Formula One Teams Association and team principal of the McLaren F1 team.
