Speaking to Sky Germany, Marko claimed that the media had fabricated the stories somewhat. However, the Austrian did accept that there are some differences of opinion between himself and Horner, but that it was not having any effect on the team.
“I think we win too much and there is no real news and then something gets made up,” Marko said. “In general, the structure and atmosphere in the team is good. It is clear that there are small misunderstandings or different opinions here and there. But everything is fine.”
Marko and Horner together forever?
At the age of 80, Marko has been involved in the motorsport industry for six decades and it appears unlikely that he will depart the Milton Keynes outfit anytime soon, especially given their recent dominance.
Marko continued to describe his relationship with Horner, noting that Red Bull Racing is their shared passion and that they will continue their roles going forward.
“We have known each other for 27 years and we built this [team] together. When it comes to who does what, he does the operational part and I am more involved in the strategy. So far it has always worked well. We will continue to make sure that things continue to work in the future.”
