McLaren boss Zak Brown has opted for a rather more direct approach to gathering intel. During a charity auction for The Halow Project, Red Bull Technical boss Adrian Newey had offered a tour of the Red Bull Racing facilities. The winning bidder? Zak Brown made sure he was.

What's it worth? Zak Brown @mclaren bought a factory visit from Adrian Newey @redbullracing at Joe Macari's @joemacarievents charity pub quiz for @thehalowproject and @dreamflight_official . Should be an interesting visit. Nothing to see here! #f1 #factoryvisit #redbullracing #mclarenf1 #joemacari #joemacarievents #halowproject b
