Asked how the project affects his own future despite a contract that runs to 2023, Verstappen said: “It’s great to see.
"Of course, we talk about it within the team and it is a very exciting future which of course, I want to be part of."
From next year, Red Bull will join Ferrari as the only two teams on the grid to produce both its chassis and power unit on the same campus.
Mercedes and Alpine produce their own power units but in separate locations to the chassis development.
Reflecting on the growing number of Mercedes staff joining Red Bull, Verstappen commented: “It is interesting.
"But it is quite normal, when a team has been so dominant for such a long time, that you will try to get those kinds of people. I also think it is an interesting new project to be part of from our side.
“When people are in the same place for a long time sometimes they want to seek new challenges and that is understandable.”
