Adrian Newey is in Silverstone, not pulling for his Red Bull Racing team.

Apr.20 (GMM) Adrian Newey chose overcast Silverstone over smoggy Shanghai for the weekend of the Chinese Grand Prix.

Speed Week reports that Red Bull's technical boss will not be on the Shanghai pitwall on Sunday because he is actually trackside at Silverstone.

It is at the British Grand Prix venue that the season opener of the world endurance sports car championship is taking place, and Newey has been spotted chatting with Red Bull's newly-retired driver Mark Webber.

This weekend, Australian Webber is kicking off his new career as Porsche's lead prototype driver.

"It was just a shorter journey to Silverstone than it was to Shanghai," a smiling Newey explained.
