Jos Verstappen: The question of 2021 remains openSeptember 16, 2019
Jos Verstappen, the father of the Red Bull Racing driver and the former Formula 1 driver himself, hinted that the question of his son’s future remains open, since after 2020 Max would like to have at his disposal a car that will allow him to fight for the championship title.
Verstappen Jr.’s contract with Red Bull expires next year, and ideally he would be happy to win the championship with this team, but if this is unrealistic, he will be ready to consider other options.
“The most important thing for us is to get a car where Max can fight for the title,” said Jos Verstappen on the Dutch television channel Ziggo Sport. – In the next season, he will in any case play for Red Bull, but everything about 2021 remains open. But at the moment we are fully focused on 2020, and then we’ll see. ”
It is easy to assume that in the future Verstappen can only be interested in moving to Ferrari or Mercedes, and Jos has a good personal relationship with Toto Wolff, the head of the factory team of the Stuttgart concern. However, his son in theory does not exclude that he might turn out to be a partner of Charles Lecler.
“Charles and I can get along if we play on the same team,” said Max. – We both want to win, but have mutual respect. I do not deny, conflicts are possible, but not the same as they arose between Hamilton and Rosberg in Mercedes. “
No matter how Max’s future career prospects evolve, it is clear that in the very near future he will have to argue for victory in the championships with Leclair and Hamilton.
“We have known Charles for a long time, Max has been chasing him for a long time. He is a fast racer, and I think that in the coming years we will see a struggle between Hamilton, Verstappen and Leclair. This is very cool and will benefit Formula 1 “, – said the father of the Dutch rider.
