### Newey’s Exit: The Lowdown
Crack of dawn, and it’s all over the news. Adrian Newey’s waving goodbye to Red Bull Racing. But he’s not ghosting just yet. He’ll stick around till the end of March 2025.

Jos Verstappen’s not keeping it zipped. Told De Telegraaf he saw this coming. “Gotta keep the A-team together for peace at home base. Now? Not happening,” says the ex-F1 racer. Max Verstappen? Mum’s the word post-announcement. But his stance was never a secret. He’s all for team unity.

Christian Horner, the big boss at Red Bull, took to Instagram. Called Newey a pal. But, oof, the fans? They weren’t having any of it. Meanwhile, Toto Wolff from Mercedes is playing it cool. Told Reuters, “Newey’s a legend. Just sitting back and watching how this plays out, like any other F1 fan.”

### Ferrari’s Miami Makeover
Oh, and Ferrari’s dropping some style news too. Their 2024 Miami Grand Prix look? It’s got a new sponsor, HP, and some snazzy blue highlights. But don’t expect a full blue makeover. The “Dinoco Ferrari” dream? Not happening in Florida, folks.
