Adrian Newey ‘not a fan’ of Wolff as Mercedes boss addresses Hamilton behaviour

After five races in the 2024 season, Red Bull has had a great start to the season, but their off-field drama continues to overshadow their victories. The Christian Horner controversy is still causing waves, and Adrian Newey’s purported discontent is probably making it harder to get ready for this weekend’s Miami Grand Prix.

According to reports, the chief technology officer is eager to leave Red Bull at the end of the current campaign, one year before his contract expires, after growing dissatisfied with the organization. If Newey is allowed to leave, he will not be short of suitors; Mercedes and Ferrari are just a couple of them.

If he went with the latter, he would team up with Lewis Hamilton in the upcoming season; however, Mercedes’ valiant attempt to sign Max Verstappen might hold more weight in talks as the Silver Arrows prepare an incredible double swoop.

Adrian Newey set to snub Mercedes because of Toto Wolff

According to reports, Adrian Newey will turn down Mercedes’ interest because of Toto Wolff.

At the end of the season, the chief technology officer has been strongly linked to leaving Red Bull, and he has no shortage of suitors thanks to his stellar resume.

Mercedes is also eager to sign him, and Aston Martin and Ferrari are prepared to compete for his signature.

Nevertheless, given the importance of the project, nl.motorsport reports that Newey is not especially interested in joining the latter.

The fact that Newey doesn’t have “too high of an opinion” of Mercedes team principal Wolff is also believed to be a major factor in his decision to reject the offer.

Toto Wolff speaks out on Lewis Hamilton’s professionalism

Toto Wolff, the head of Mercedes, has leapt to Lewis Hamilton’s defense, stating that the British driver has remained professional despite his team’s difficult start to the season.

Hamilton is scheduled to switch from Mercedes to Ferrari at the end of the season, but it now seems unlikely that he will finish the season with at least a race victory.

Wolff asserts, however, that Lewis is a professional and has conducted himself in that manner up until this point, suggesting that the seven-time world champion has not let the performances get to him.

His goal is to maintain a positive attitude. And even in the event that no results materialize, the team’s morale. Thus, I believe I can say with certainty that this will endure. Additionally, he offered assistance to George Russell when things were going well.
