Red Bull Racing keeps the door to the driver change in 2023 open.
Active F1 World Champion Max Verstappen has a long-term contract with Red Bull Racing until 2028, but recently motorsport adviser Helmut Marko said, “If you experience a’crash’like in 2014. , Admits that Verstappen has a surname that triggers a termination clause.
But the real question mark is about Sergio Perez’s cockpit, and Pierre Guthrie, who now belongs to Scuderia AlphaTauri, is not hiding that he is aiming for new opportunities at Verstappen and Red Bull Racing. I’m pushing hard.
“Guthrie has a contract until 2023, so we still have time,” he told Helmut Marko Viaplay.
“We are completely focused on performance, as we have always done with Red Bull.”
Therefore, it is clear that the second seat of Red Bull Racing in 2023 will be decided by the winner based on the on-course performance of Pierre Guthrie and Sergio Perez this season.
Sergio Perez, who belongs to Red Bull Racing under a one-year contract for the second consecutive year, has won his first pole position in Saudi Arabia. He appealed for the improvement of Saturday’s performance, which was regarded as a weak point.
“It was a great rap,” said Helmut Marko.
“Especially last year he had a hard time qualifying. I was surprised that Perez was so tenacious. He is a good teammate and the two drivers understand each other well.”
“We have a one-year contract with Perez, so we’ll see what happens and decide who to put next to Verstappen in 2023 before and after summer vacation.”
Regarding Max Verstappen, Red Bull Racing’s performance in Melbourne was “unacceptable,” but Helmut Marko guarantees Verstappen’s long-term glory in F1.
“He’s already the fastest driver. Now he can be one of the best drivers ever,” Helmut Marko said.
Reassuringly for Max Verstappen, Porsche is likely to become a Red Bull Racing work partner if a Volkswagen Group-owned brand enters F1 in 2026.
“In the past we have often talked about working with the Volkswagen Group,” Helmut Marko said.
“Now I hear they want to enter F1. Of course, we are logical partners. I want to talk to them and see if they are on the same page.”
