Marko: ‘Unfortunate that Sainz was in same trajectory as Verstappen’

Helmut Marko thinks Carlos Sainz is going to do great at Ferrari. The only reason the Spaniard never got to Red Bull Racing is that his training program ran parallel to Max Verstappen’s.

Marko only has good words for his former Red Bull junior. From 2010 to 2014, the Spaniard found shelter with the Austrians. Marko got to know him well from that time: “First of all, I want to emphasize that Carlos is a good boy. He is also smart and fast.”

“It is unfortunate for him that he was trained at Red Bull and was then in exactly the same trajectory as Max Verstappen. I am convinced that he will do well at Ferrari,” the Red Bull Racing adviser told Gazzetta dello Sport. Had the Dutchman not been there, Sainz would definitely have become a Red Bull driver.”

Marko about Vettel’s future

It is clear that Sebastian Vettel has no future with Red Bull. But Marko still speaks with the German often: “Of course we spoke, we talk a lot,  at least once a month. He continues to be a very talented and successful driver.”

“Whether he wants to go on or not, I honestly wouldn’t know. That’s in his mind. Only he can make that decision,” the Austrian concluded. He admitted he has no idea what the next step will be for the four-time world champion. (Photo: Red Bull Content Pool / Getty Images)
