Dan Fallows lead the RB17 that started out as quite a disappointment, until Newey came back to design office.
We have any source on this?
I remember there was news that Newey had come back to fully work on F1 in 2019 and in his book he said that he did take a step back from F1 for other projects. I believe the book was released around 2017 so it could be true

RBR are well staffed in the aero department; if I were them I'd be looking for a protégé , I'm sure there are more than enough curious and talented individuals who would be more than willing to soak up his philosophy like a sponge, and carry the torch.

Newey is coming from aerospace engineering. Unless someone followed a similar path I dont think he can train them in an F1 team when they only have F1 experience.
For Sure!!

I've done turbine engine maintenance, does that count as aerospace?

Maintenance vs design i dunno.. :)
Can an F-1 mechanic say he's good for F-1 aerodynamicist gig next year? :P

Didn't Adrian Newey do exactly that? When from being a gearbox monkey at Fittipaldi, to race engineering for CART teams. Then got an aerodynamicist gig at Leyton house.

I could be wrong about the exact details though.

Edit: sorry I forgot, he worked on the ground effects tunnels for Fittipaldi cars

It's amazing how Verstappen has not had mechanical DNF this season, in 21 races. Last year in 17 races he had 5 DNF of which 2 or 3 were mechanical. Depends on whether you see tyre failures as mechanical dnfs ofcourse.

I do not mean to jinx him, just want to point out how good Honda+RedBull have been this season reliability-wise. Sad to see Honda leave when they're only just peaking...

That was a tyre failure, which the OP said "depends on whether you count tyre failure".

Max did have a mechanical failure of his DRS in Zandvoort, luckily it was at the end of qualifying so they could fix it for the race.
