Red Bull Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey believes his team are straight-talking on and off the race track and admits they are proud of their openness.
Since joining Formula 1 in 2005, Red Bull have forged a culture that stands out from rivals McLaren, Mercedes and Ferrari. Their clear-cut opinions run from Team Principal Christian Horner, their drivers and through the entire team.
"As the viewing figures and the size of the teams have increased, Formula 1 has become a much bigger business and with that comes more media spin and political manoeuvring," said Newey.
"I think what is great about our team, and this comes very much from the ethos of [Red Bull boss] Dietrich Mateschitz and the Red Bull outlook, is that we are here to win but we want to do it our way and in a clean way so we can stand up proudly when we do take wins.
"We are also a straight-talking team both internally and externally. We do show our emotions and we are proud of that openness in the way we work and for me, it is a refreshing environment to be in."
Red Bull are currently involved in their first title battle in F1's turbo-hybrid era with Max Verstappen just eight points behind Lewis Hamilton in the Drivers' Championship. Newey feels that having the sport's top two drivers in different teams increases the intensity between Mercedes and Red Bull.
"We have seen some great races this year through the field but the standout titanic battle is between Max and Lewis and it makes amazing viewing when you see two people absolutely at the top of their game slogging it out every week," continued Newey.
"The fact that they are in different machinery and are not teammates heightens it even further. It makes an even broader competition and the car and how we manage to adapt to the ever-changing scene does become a factor."
