Red Bull Team Advisor Dr Helmut Marko is pleased that the exit clause in Max Verstapp's contract has expired after the Hungarian GP race, which means that the Dutchman will remain with the Red Bull team next season.
Helmut Marko recently revealed that Toto Wolff has been striving for Mercedes to lure Max Verstappen as the Dutchman's exit clause expires after the end of the race in Hungary.
Marko claims Verstappen has a deal under which the Dutchman can leave Red Bull if he does not occupy one of the top three places after the end of the Hungarian World Cup.
After Verstappen easily finished third in the overall standings with Hungaroring in second place, his exit clause expired, which also pleased Mark, who said after the race.
Of course, this is very nice and we are glad that this matter is now closed. Nevertheless, we had an agreement before that to continue in the future.
According to Mark, Toto Wolff has repeatedly tried to make the move through the Dutch father, Jos. Verstappen.
Helmut Marko told the Hungarian GP:
“Toto Wolff is continuing his games as he went out to dinner with Jos Verstapp again yesterday. That's his thing, and he can do whatever he wants. We have a contract with Max and not with Jos. We are sure he will stay with Red Bull. “
