Adrian Newey's contract with Red Bull is set to expire this year and no surprise to anyone there's a lot of speculation about if he re-signs or goes somewhere else.

Damon Hill seems to think he might be convinced to go to another team like Mercedes.

Damon Hill on Adrian Newey future

"So those people who are not that familiar with the backroom people in Formula 1 that make things actually happen, Adrian Newey is by a long chalk one of the most successful, if not the most successful, car designer in Formula 1 history," Hill began.

"His success rate is unbelievable, every team he's been to virtually he's won a constructors' championship, drivers' titles, I've lost count how many. So he's a key man, and what he has to offer any team is invaluable."

It was at this point Hill pondered Newey's mindset, with a the focus on one high-profile moment which already caught his eye this season.

"I can't help ignoring this thing he [Newey] did in Bahrain, where he stood in front of the Mercedes on the grid, with his clipboard, and stood there for a long time looking at their front wings.

"Anybody who knows Adrian will know 'wait a minute, he's already got the most dominant car in F1, why's he looking at the Mercedes front wings?'

"Was he really looking at the front wings? Or was he just standing in front of a Mercedes saying 'I'm interested'. Is that what he was really saying?"

While any move made by Newey would be a massive domino to fall in the short-term history of the sport, Hill was also asked if right now anybody has a chance of catching the RB19 in 2023.
