Dec.11  (Grand Prix 247) Red Bull Racing chief technical officer Adrian Newey revealed that winning the two titles this season rates as the most satisfying in his illustrious career.

Speaking to the media Newey said, “I was very privileged to work with Williams and then McLaren, two great teams but they had already had the infrastructure and won championships prior to my arrival so my job was very much a design job.”

He added, “I’ve been with the team [Red Bull] more or less from the start developing the team with everybody, developing infrastructure, getting communications working through the team and so it has been a different challenge which has in some ways been even more satisfying.”

Newey is regarded as one of the greatest innovators in the sport and was responsible for developing and delivering the blown rear diffuser and the flexible front wing which gave the RB6 an edge which Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber used to great effect to win the constructor’s championship for fizzy drinks team while Vettel became the youngest ever F1 World Champion.

He believes that 2011 will be even more competitive but is sure that the RB7 will adapt to the new Pirelli tyres while certain tweaks in the regulations made by the FIA will benefit the new car.
