SAILING great Ben Ainslie says Formula One design guru Adrian Newey wants to join his quest to create the first successful British America’s Cup team.

Newey signed a new deal with Red Bull last week, but revealed it would see him take a step back from the team whose success he has masterminded, allowing him to dip into new projects.

Ainslie said: “He’s a fantastic guy; the most successful Formula One designer in history and very passionate about sailing.

“He’s keen to help us. We have to see how his timing works out but he would be a huge asset.”
