Ever wondered just what makes a Formula 1 engineering genius tick? Want to know the secrets of what it takes to be the driving force behind ten Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship victories, for Williams, McLaren and Red Bull Racing? How you design the cars in which such stars as Mansell, Prost, Hill, Villeneuve and Hakkinen won the Drivers’ Championship?
Now you can find out, on 15 February 2017, in the company of Octane and Evo, at the Royal Automobile Club in London’s Pall Mall – complete with a three-course dinner plus wine.
Newey’s career got started in 1981, when he joined the March F2 team as a race engineer. Quickly progressing within the team, Newey designed the IMSA GTP championship-winning March GTP. He later went on to design the March 85C and 86C, which won the Indy 500 three times.
Of course Newey is best known for his years in F1, after joining Williams as Chief Designer in 1990. The team took five constructors titles during his time there, also helping Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Damon Hill and Jacques Villeneuve to their drivers' championships. After joining McLaren in 1997, a Newey-designed car helped the team to the 1998 constructors championships and Mika Hakkinen to a pair of drivers' titles. His most recent success has been with the Red Bull team.
