Sebastian Vettel in Formula 1: Ferrari star does not return to Red Bull
After the disastrous for him Monza weekend speculation receive new food, according to which Sebastian Vettel's future could stand on Ferrari despite an existing contract for 2020 on wobbly legs. But to return to Red Bull it will not come despite still good relations between Vettel and the energy drink manufacturer.
In the specialist publication "Speedweek", which is known to belong to the Red Bull Group, Helmut Marko explains that he has "no idea", "as far as Vettel's future is concerned." We had some wonderful years together, but we have our four drivers, Vettel has no relevance for us. "
Only recently Marko has confirmed a conversation with Vettel's lawyers. But it was only about a "business matter", "purely private". Before that, Christian Horner had already made it clear that Vettel is under contract with Ferrari for 2020 and that the issue is therefore superfluous.
Vettel farewell from Ferrari conceivable?
Incidentally, the speculation surrounding Vettel's future was also a topic in the Formula 1 podcast "Starting Grid" after the Italian Grand Prix in Monza. The talk show explains, among other things, why a Vettel return to Red Bull is unlikely and what that has to do with Max Verstappen.
In the quoted 'Speedweek' interview, Marko also announces that Red Bull "wants to evaluate after the US race," who will drive where 2020 ". Should Alexander Albon perform well until then, his chances for the second Red Bull cockpit are probably greatest.
Incidentally, the fact that the Thai player Albon has been given the chance in the A team has "nothing at all" to do with the Thai Yoovidhya family, which controls 51 percent of Red Bull: "They have never spoken, it's up to them us."
