Adrian Newey Reveals Two Key Austrian GP Incidents That Made Him ‘Nervous

Red Bull’s design genius, Adrian Newey, has disclosed that two incidents during the Austrian Grand Prix weekend had him on edge, despite Max Verstappen’s seemingly straightforward victory at the Red Bull Ring.

Verstappen secured his fifth consecutive win, extending Red Bull’s flawless run in 2023 and widening their lead in the Constructors’ standings to a commanding 199 points after just nine rounds. However, Newey emphasized that the team’s success is far from easy, highlighting Verstappen’s close call with teammate Sergio Perez in the sprint race and his late pitstop for the fastest lap bonus point as moments that made him “nervous” in Austria.
