Verstappen in no rush to commit to Red Bull after 2020
Max Verstappen says he is not “in a hurry” to decide on his future beyond the length of his current Red Bull contract, which expires at the end of next season.
This campaign has been the most successful of his career so far as he has won two races in Germany and Austria as well as claiming his very first pole position. However, Red Bull still continue to languish behind Mercedes and Ferrari in terms of wins and points in the constructors’ rankings.
New regulations are set to be introduced in 2021 with the aim of levelling the playing field, and with that in mind, Verstappen isn’t totally committing himself to Red Bull beyond 2020.
“I’m not too worried,” the Dutchman admitted to Auto Motor und Sport.
“First of all, I want to take a close look at everything that has been promised and what actually matters. We want to win races and the championship next year, that’s why I’m here.
“Red Bull and I are working towards that goal. But there are so many other question marks after 2020. What’s happening generally with Formula 1?
“That’s why I’m taking my time. I’m not in a hurry.”
