Allison to replace Newey after 2014? (Update)UPDATE This rumor is downgraded to 'false' today. Red Bull has denied the latest reports linking Lotus' departed technical director James Allison with the world champion team.
While Allison was earlier linked with a move to Ferrari, Germany's Auto Motor und Sport reported rumors the Briton could actually go to Red Bull.
"Those speculating in the paddock believe that Adrian Newey will stop at the end of 2014," correspondents Michael Schmidt and Bianca Leppert said.
But Red Bull said on its official Twitter page on Wednesday: "There are a few rumors circulating today, but we can confirm that James Allison is not joining Infiniti Red Bull Racing."
Is Adrian Newey contemplating retirement?
06/05/13 (GMM) James Allison, the highly-rated F1 engineer who recently left Lotus, is being linked with Red Bull's future.
When Briton Allison left Lotus, he was most strongly linked with a move to Ferrari.
But Germany's Auto Motor und Sport reports that, a month after Allison's departure from Enstone, it is "still not clear" where he is headed.
Correspondents Michael Schmidt and Bianca Leppert said: "Rumors are increasing that maybe he will go to Red Bull.
"Those speculating in the paddock believe that Adrian Newey will stop at the end of 2014.
"The design genius often expresses his frustration with the increasingly restricted regulations, and fears that the new turbo era will make F1 an engine formula."
