In a surprising revelation, it has come to light that Max Verstappen’s contract with Red Bull includes a clause that allows him to leave the team immediately.

This clause, however, is contingent upon a significant event – the departure of Helmut Marko from Red Bull.

Marko’s Perspective on the Rumors

Amidst the swirling rumors of Verstappen’s potential move to Mercedes, Marko has spoken out. In a statement that could be interpreted as both supportive and resigned, he said : “As far as I’m concerned: I will not stand in Max’s way”

This statement, while not a definitive confirmation of Verstappen’s departure, certainly leaves the door open for such a possibility.

Red Bull’s Potential Losses

The current situation at Red Bull is precarious, Gerhard Berger believes that the team is at risk of losing several key figures within their organization. Berger’s prediction is stark: “As things stand: Horner stays, Helmut Marko and Adrian Newey leave and Max goes to Mercedes”.

With Verstappen’s contract clause and Marko’s recent comments, the stage is set for a possible departure that could reshape the team’s future.
