Sutil Praises "Special" Adrian Newey for Incredible Red Bull Car

With so much criticism directed at Red Bull Racing for their ingenuous aerodynamic solutions this season, seldom you find someone from outside the Milton Keynes factory to say a few positive words about the Austrian team.

Unlike the team principals of McLaren and Mercedes GP, who are putting Red Bull's latest results on the back of potentially illegal wing designs, race driver Adrian Sutil has nothing but good things to say about them. For example, the German driver believes at the end of the day, Red Bull have clearly been smarter than anyone else this season.

If you notice nothing in the tests, then they have done nothing wrong. That's just clever. You have to push the rules as far as you can. And Red Bull have been smarter than everyone else. Somehow they manage to do everything a little better,” said the 27-year old racer in an interview with Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

According to Sutil – and most of us, we're sure – the man who deserves all the praises for the incredibly quick RB6 is design guru Adrian Newey. The man has a history of designing fast, title winning cars ever since he set foot in Formula One, being well-known for his dominant roles within the Williams and McLaren organizations in the 90s.

I think Herr Newey has very special skills. For me, the Red Bull is an incredible car,” added Sutil, convinced that the Colchester-born designer is the puppeteer behind the entire Red Bull show.

After 12 rounds of the ongoing Formula One season, Red Bull have finally climbed to the position they deserve in the manufacturers' standings – 1st place, of course – holding an 8-point lead over McLaren Mercedes. To make it even sweeter, their constructors' lead is doubled by the fact that they also reign over the drivers' classification, where Mark Webber has 4 points of advantage in front of Lewis Hamilton.
