Verstappen refuses to discuss Red Bull exit clause

Verstappen refuses to discuss Red Bull exit clause

Max Verstappen has, sort of, responded to rumours regarding an exit-clause in his contract with Red Bull which he could exercise to leave the team if they do not close the performance gap on Mercedes and Ferrari.

Spanish newspaper Marca previously claimed that the Dutchman would be free to negotiate an early release if he does not win a grand prix before the summer break this season. Other reports have claimed that Red Bull must finish in the top three to guarantee keeping hold of Verstappen.

And Verstappen's manager Raymond Vermuelen fuelled the rumours further as he too confirmed that Verstappen could be the hottest free agent on the 2020 market should certain terms be met.

"We confirm that there is a performance clause in the contract," Vermeulen told Formule 1. "But we will not make any further statements about its content. Red Bull and Verstappen know exactly what the agreements entail."

Now, following the qualifying session for the Austrian Grand Prix, the question was put to the driver himself, but he refused to comment on the subject, and suggested he is not allowed to discuss it.

Verstappen impressed in qualifying on Saturday, and will start third on the grid at the Red Bull Ring for the race proper.

Prior to qualifying, Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto confirmed that the Dutchman was not on their radar for a seat with the team next year.
