Lance Stroll has insisted Adrian Newey joining Aston Martin Formula 1 programme would be a “pretty fucking awesome” scenario for the team.

Newey will depart Red Bull in early 2025 and has been heavily linked with a switch to Aston Martin, while Ferrari has also been touted as a potential destination for the 65-year-old.

The Briton is regarded as one of the greatest designers in F1 history, winning 25 titles during his stint in the sport.

Stroll, whose contract extension at the Silverstone-based squad was recently confirmed, voiced his desire to work alongside Newey.

“It would be pretty fucking awesome,” Stroll told media including RacingNews365 about the prospect of linking up with Newey. 

“He is the GOAT (greatest of all time) and he's got more championships than anyone in this paddock.

“He is someone that everyone would love to have in their team colours.

“I don't think anyone would say no to having Adrian on board, that's for sure.”

Stroll would have 'no surprise' over Newey signature

Newey has been part of Red Bull's F1 set-up for almost 20 years and has played a key role in its current championship-winning form.

Aston Martin has endured a difficult start to the current campaign, sitting fifth in the constructors' standings after the opening 10 rounds.

When asked if he would be surprised if Newey chose to join Aston Martin, Stroll replied: “No.

“We have a super exciting wind tunnel being built, we have a very exciting campus.

“We have all the tools that a team wants and needs to succeed to be really competitive and I think it's attractive for anyone in F1 to be a part of.

“I don't think we're missing much, definitely, in terms of facility and all that, I don't think [we’re missing] anything.

“It’s a matter of time, we’re growing as a team. This set of regulations, we're not going to win races realistically because we're behind and to catch up, it's tricky.

“It's a new challenge in 2026, for everyone fresh sheet of paper. I think for us, it's a huge opportunity.”
