No chance for Newey’s rivals, says Berger
24 January 2011 – Former Grand Prix winner Gerhard Berger believes the competition stand ‘no chance’ of more World Championship success for as long as Adrian Newey is working at Red Bull Racing, with the Englishman’s RB6 having triumphed in both title chases as well as nine of the 19 Grands Prix in 2010.
Although his last constructors’ title was won as far back as in 1998, Newey has celebrated numerous drivers’ crowns with both Williams and McLaren and now, with this year’s Red Bull RB7 set to be an evolution of its predecessor, Berger believes that times will be hard for all other teams.
“I don’t see any chance for the others, except if the rules change dramatically” the Austrian, 10 times a Grand Prix victor, explained to Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport. “Newey, in the field of aerodynamics, is quite simply a genius – although it would be better if the driving genius played the decisive role.”
