Adrian Newey rejected Mercedes approach says Marko

Mercedes reached out to Adrian Newey shortly before the famous Formula 1 designer extended his deal with Red Bull. That is the claim of, reporting that Newey got a phone call from a former Red Bull employee who is now working as a personal assistant to Mercedes boss Toto Wolff. It was also reported recently that Ferrari approached Red Bull’s technical director Pierre Wache – and others – about a potential switch to Maranello. One rumour is that Ferrari is pushing Red Bull to allow the engineers to make that switch in exchange for releasing Laurent Mekies to become Red Bull-owned Alpha Tauri’s new boss ahead of time.
