Dec.2 (GMM/ The rules are changing radically over the winter, but keen observers will still spot ‘Red Bull DNA’ at the heart of Adrian Newey’s next creation.

The turbo V6 regulations are not the only wholesale changes ahead of the new world championship, as Newey reminded readers of Germany’s Sport Bild magazine that big aerodynamic changes are also on the cards.

“The narrower front wing and low nose means that the cars will look a lot different,” he said.

“But you will also recognise some familiar ‘Red Bull’ characteristics next year,” added Newey.

Indeed, Osterreich newspaper said Newey commonly refers to the 2014 car, the RB10, as “the cousin” of this year’s dominant, title-winning single seater.
