Motor racing: Red Bull's Newey sees huge challenge in 2014 with rules shake-up
LONDON (REUTERS) - Red Bull technical head Adrian Newey says he is preparing for next year's Formula One regulation changes with some trepidation.
The sport is introducing a new V6 turbocharged engine with energy recovery systems in what is considered the biggest shake-up in a generation.
Testing with the new cars is due to start at the end of January with the season starting in Australia in March.
"I think from our perspective it is somewhere between mild panic and crisis management," Newey joked on stage at Sunday's Autosport Awards, where Red Bull won the international racing car of the year for the fourth year in a row.
