Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko said he’s not comfortable with how the season finish is developing, as Hamilton won the last two races.


  • Marko stated Verstappen has to win one of the last two races of the season [either Saudi Arabia or Abu Dhabi] in order to further secure the chances of winning the championship title.

What he said:

  • “We are ahead, but I definitely don’t feel comfortable yet. We have to win one of the last two races, it’s as simple as that.”
  • “Everything has to be perfect during a weekend. It’s only between Max [Verstappen] and Lewis [Hamilton], the others are nowhere.”
  • “Hamilton’s engine won’t have as much power as it did last week in Brazil. Besides, I don’t think they used their ‘special’ rear wing here because the difference in top speed was smaller. We are not giving up.”
