Sebastian Vettel says that working with Adrian Newey "is an incredible experience" and that "he gives me confidence".

Both Vettel and Newey have been courted by Ferrari, with the latter seen as the driving force behind Vettel's three consecutive drivers' championships. Vettel said that Newey's role at Red Bull is so crucial that he actually takes confidence from having him in the team.

"You need to feel happy in the team you're in and it is essential to have a competitive car," Vettel is quoted by Sporting Life. "Right now I have them both. This is where Adrian is so brilliant. He gives me confidence and he designs world-beating cars. It is an incredible experience to work with him. I think we can do even better."

Newey himself added that he has no desire to leave Red Bull and hinted that he will end his Formula One career with the team.

"Red Bull is a great team to work for," Newey said. "I've always maintained I do not want to spend my entire career in motor racing and certainly not F1 - but right now I am enjoying it. And as long as that is the case and people offer me work, then I'll keep doing it.

"At this team we keep egos and politics to a minimum and try to keep an atmosphere where there's no finger-pointing. We encourage creativity. And our results and titles show how all that has paid off."
