LONDON, England - Formula 1's top designer Adrian Newey has agreed a new multi-year agreement with 2013 F1 champion team Red Bull.

The team said, however, that the Briton's focus would no longer be entirely on F1.

The Red Bull statement read: "As part of this new agreement, Adrian will work on new Red Bull Technology projects as well as advising and mentoring Infiniti Red Bull Racing as it develops its F1 cars over the next few seasons."

Details of the new projects would be announced in due course.


Newey has been with Red Bull since the start of the 2006 season after designing title-winning cars for Williams and McLaren.

Red Bull has won the previous four Drivers' and Constructors' championships in a row with German driver Sebastian Vettel.

Newey made clear in May 2014, when he moved to squash speculation about a possible big-money bid from rival Ferrari, that he wanted to stay at Red Bull despite the current domination of Mercedes.

Newey said at the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix: "I remain committed to Red Bull for the foreseeable future."

Newey had been linked to Ferrari as well as a switch to Americas  Cup yachting but has forged a close working relationship with Red Bull team principal Christian Horner who told reporters at the 2014 Monaco F1 GP two weeks earlier that Newey had "a paternal feeling" towards Red Bull.

Horner said: "He's been involved (with the team) since the beginning, is much more involved than he has been at any other team, and he enjoys the environment in which he works."
