Adrian Newey Opens Up on Red Bull's Winning Formula with the RB19
The 2022 Formula 1 season brought forth a slew of new regulations, and Red Bull and Mercedes took distinctly different paths in interpreting and implementing these changes. When Mercedes unveiled their unconventional ‘zero pod’ concept, it raised concerns about how this would impact their performance relative to their rivals. However, as it turns out, Red Bull’s approach proved to be the winning formula, with the team refining their strategy throughout 2022 and into the 2023 Formula 1 season, establishing themselves as the dominant force on the grid.
During a recent episode of the Beyond the Grid podcast, Adrian Newey, renowned Formula 1 designer, was asked about what Red Bull got right with these regulations to achieve such a significant advantage. In his characteristic humor, Newey responded, “I can’t tell you that, can I?” However, he did provide some insights into their journey to dominance and the development path that led to their current success.
