Adrian Newey was on the Canadian Grand Prix podium at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal Sunday for Red Bull’s 100th Formula One victory. Not coincidently, it was Newey’s 200th career win for F1 cars that he has designed at McLaren, Williams, Torro Roso and Red Bull. The RRDC member is arguably one of the most brilliant racecar designers ever, in company with Colin Chapman and John Barnhard. His current Red Bull RB 19 has so far won all seven 2023 F1 races, an eighth straight including the final race of last season.
In all, Newey’s designs have won 11 F1 Constructors’ Championships with three different teams, plus a total of seven World Drivers’ titles. He came to Red Bull in 2006, his cars winning the F1 drivers’ and constructors’ championships consecutively from 2010 to 2013, the drivers’ championship in 2021 and both championships in 2022. Newey’s designs also won the 1985 and 1986 CART titles.
