Pending decisions on Pérez’s future

Sergio Pérez is still in line for a contract extension with the team. Despite the inevitable comparisons to Max Verstappen, Marko emphasizes that this does not mean that Pérez should leave. “He still has a contract until 2024. That depends on him.

If he continues to perform as he has in the last few races, then we can definitely talk about an extension,” commented the 80-year-old Red Bull consultant. The decision about who will take second place in the Austrian team will only be made after the summer break, says Marko.

When will Red Bull’s second seat be decided?

In the event that Pérez does not live up to expectations, Daniel Ricciardo emerges as one of the possible replacements. “Ricciardo has to show that he can clearly keep up with Tsunoda. Then he could be a candidate,” says Marko. Aside from that, Rumors are circulating that Alexander Albon has received an offer from his former team, making the future of the Red Bull lineup even more exciting.
