Marko trusts on Red Bull Racing's continuation through "good sponsors"

Helmut Marko has warned about financial problems with the smaller teams. The Austrian has made an estimate of how much money Red Bull Racing would miss if the 2020 season would not be held. Such a loss can be absorbed by Red Bull, but not for many smaller players.
"If there are not enough races for a world championship, we will lose between twenty and fifty million euros in turnover. That means that some other teams are going to get hit a lot heavier", said the 77-year-old Formula 1 expert to ORF.
Marko does indicate to the Austrian media that Red Bull expects little damage from the crisis. According to Marko, the racing team is "not at risk" of going bankrupt. According to the Red Bull Racing advisor, this is mainly due to "good sponsors".
"Is a championship not possible? Then don't race at all"
Earlier, Cyril Abiteboul advocated an "all or nothing" approach to F1. Driving races without getting enough races to set up a championship would be the greatest danger. In that case, the teams would have to put down a lot of money to race, while the loss of the championship would cost them a lot of money. "Is a championship not possible? Then don't race at all", suggested the Renault team boss (Picture: Red Bull Content Pool / Getty Images)
