Red Bull has confirmed that it has extended its contract with chief technical officer Adrian Newey, although his focus will no longer be fully on Formula 1.
Newey joined the team at the start of 2006 and has been an integral part in Red Bull's rise to becoming a front runner with the team winning four titles between 2010 and 2013.
Rumours were rife that Newey was considering parting company with the team, but the announcement means that he will remain with the reigning champions for the foreseeable future, although he will now also work on other Red Bull projects.
'Red Bull is pleased to confirm that it has extended its successful relationship with Adrian Newey with a new multi-year agreement', read a statement.
'As part of this new agreement, Adrian will work on new Red Bull Technology projects, as well as advising and mentoring Infiniti Red Bull Racing as it develops its Formula One cars over the next few seasons. The details of the new projects will be announced in due course.'
