Verstappen warns Red Bull 'everything open' for 2021

Red Bull's hopes of retaining Max Verstappen beyond next year will rest solely on the team's ability to deliver a title-winning car, says the Dutchman's father, Jos.

Despite taking two victories in 2019, Verstappen is 99 points adrift of championship leader Lewis Hamilton, as the Mercedes man has blown away the competition in 2019 en route to a near-certain sixth world title.

A quit start to the season as Red Bull got to grips with the 2019 regulation changes and their new Honda power units left Verstappen with huge ground to make up, and he has slipped further back across the last two grands prix, which saw him retire in Belgium and then finish eighth in Italy from the back of the grid.

However, former F1 racer Jos says the situation will be very different next year, when Max enters the final year of his Red Bull deal, while Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel will be in a similar position at Mercedes and Ferrari respectively.

"Next year we will be at Red Bull anyway, but everything will still be open before 2021. It will really depend on whether we will get a car in 2020 we can fight for the championship.

Verstappen sits third in the drivers' championship, but is now just three points ahead of Charles Leclerc following the Ferrari star's wins in Belgium in Monza.
