Will Max Verstappen move to Mercedes?

Whilst Verstappen has denied he will leave Red Bull, Sky F1 pundit Ted Kravitz believes a move to Mercedes is possible on certain grounds.

“Max can leave if certain conditions are met. One of those conditions is if he just feels like it. The other condition is what happens with Helmut Marko? If he goes then Max can go,” he said on the latest Sky Sports F1 podcast.

Despite Verstappen’s record-breaking pedigree, Kravitz added that the champion should be worried if he is contemplating a Mercedes move.

“So if Max sees the possibility of not getting in that seat and making it harder for himself in 2026 because Antonelli and [George] Russell are already in the team, then that’s the only reason why Max might, at the end of this year or towards the end of this year, or even beginning of next, say, okay, Helmut [Marko] is off if he is if that’s the mechanism he chooses to leave, I would like to go to Mercedes, that’s what I’m going to do.”
