Why Red Bull’s RB17 hypercar can help its F1 team

On Tuesday, Red Bull laid out its plans to develop and build a new hypercar - the RB17 - penned by Adrian Newey. As the project itself sates Newey as a creative outlet, it also offers Red Bull's Formula 1 team a number of new and exciting avenues to pursue

After four decades of ideas and innovation in creating some of the greatest ever Formula 1 cars, you would think that Adrian Newey’s enthusiasm for design projects would be waning just a little bit.

A look up and down the pitlane shows that many of his peers have long hung up their drawing boards and departed the intensity of the grand prix paddocks for a quieter life elsewhere. But as chief technical officer at Red Bull, Newey is still as hungry for success as he has ever been. And while it may be fair to say that his foot is not as flat on the accelerator as in the formative years of his career, Newey's desire is still as strong when it comes to wanting his ideas transformed in to real life.
