Helmut Marko has spoken about Max Verstappen’s chances of winning the 2021 Formula 1 world championship.

Why it matters: The Dutchman is currently in the position to win his maiden F1 world title with only five races to go in the 2021 season.


  • Marko expects Red Bull to be quick in Mexico and Brazil – the tracks where Red Bull has been strong in the recent years.
  • At the same time, the Red Bull Racing advisor believes that Red Bull’s advantage there might not be as significant as before.

What he had to say:

  • “Looking at the remaining races, I think we have to win at least two more races to be reasonably safe or, let’s say, confident going into the final race,” Marko told
  • “The high altitude tracks of Brazil and Mexico should suit us significantly better. It’s just that so much has already happened this season.”
  • “So-called Mercedes tracks weren’t Mercedes tracks in the end and the same goes for Red Bull tracks.”
