Sir Ben Ainslie wants F1's Adrian Newey to help America's Cup bid

Sir Ben Ainslie wants Red Bull Formula 1 design chief Adrian Newey involved in his attempt to win the America's Cup with a British team.

Ainslie, who spoke to Newey at November's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, says the leading F1 designer has a "huge amount to offer", but is not trying to prize him away from his Red Bull contract.

Newey designed the Red Bulls which Sebastian Vettel drove to win the last four F1 world championships and is contracted to the team until at least 2017.
