Adrian Newey has said he is committed to Red Bull “for the foreseeable future” following interest in his services from Ferrari.
While Newey has often been linked with a move to Ferrari in the past, he has usually dismissed any speculation early on, with a desire not to relocate his family to Italy among the reasons. However, following a fresh link during the Spanish Grand Prix weekend, Newey was cryptic with his answers, saying: “There's always rumours isn't there … We're all under contract and, at some point, I've got to think about the future, but my focus at the moment is trying to get back on top of the silver cars.”
However, Newey has now pledged to remain at Red Bull in an attempt to put an end to speculation over any potential move to Ferrari.
"I remain committed to Red Bull for the foreseeable future," Newey said in a short statement.
With new F1 regulations only having been introduced this year, it is understood that Newey is still motivated by the long-term project at Red Bull, with the immediate goal of returning the team to winning ways.
