Webber hails Newey genius

Webber hails Newey genius

Mark Webber has heaped praise on Adrian Newey, conceding that Red Bull would not have been so successful without the technical guru.

Having designed Championship-winning cars for Williams and McLaren during the 1990s, Newey arrived at Red Bull in 2006 as one of the best in the business and he hasn't disappointed as he has been the brainchild of Sebastian Vettel's Drivers' as well as the Constructors' titles the past three years.

Webber admits that chief technical officer Newey's influence at Red Bull has been a major factor in their rise to the top.

"We need, behind all the smoke and mirrors of a Formula 1 team, to make a racing car as quick as possible to do the business in qualifying and the races," he is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"Adrian never loses sight of that and he's a huge influence.

"You have him beating the drum and generally being a big beacon for the team here in terms of design and philosophy of where the car needs to be. You need that to be successful here.

"And when you start getting some success as well things change so quickly. Things becomes much easier."
