Verstappen Red Bull future in doubt

Now, journalist Fred Ferret has suggested that there is a distinct 'possibility' that Verstappen will ditch the team with whom he has broken so many F1 records.

Verstappen's team-mate Sergio Perez's future is also in doubt with the world champions, with the Mexican's contract due to expire at the end of this current season.

“I have to say that you have to put Max in the equation. He may have to leave at one point,” Ferret told the F1 Nation podcast.

“If he leaves Red Bull then the things are very different, and then I would say that Checo [Perez]’s seat is kind of saved because you need someone to have the legacy of the driving from the old cars.

“So this is something that you must add on your mind for ’25 and the years later.”

When asked if he believes Verstappen will be a Red Bull driver next season, Ferret explained: “I’m not that sure. Maybe Max, because of Jos, because of Helmut, because of everything, will have to leave. I would say that it’s a possibility.”
