Max Verstappen, papà Jos’s broadside at Red Bull: Mercedes close?

Jos Verstappen, papà of world champion Max Verstappen, in an interview with the De Telegraaf newspaper è went into a tirade about the unexpected difficulties Red Bull has encountered in the last Grands Prix.  After a dominant start, off-track issues and Adrian Newey's farewell have begun to weigh on the Austrian team, which has encountered sharp difficulties in Miami, Imola and especially Monte Carlo, where it collected only a meager sixth place with Verstappen.

"For sure there will be other tracks where Red Bull will do well again. But I am very curious how they will solve these problems. They will have to step in to do something, figure out where certain difficulties come from. Meanwhile è it is clear that McLaren and Ferrari are getting closer and closer, Jos said.

"Max è has been good at hiding some mishaps, but è you can see how big the difference is between him and his teammate. It seems to me that Red Bull’s period of dominance has come to an end".

Heavy statements, which at a time of the driver market are likely to mean so much. Verstappen è has been persistently accosted by rumors to Mercedes, which is to replace Lewis Hamilton next season with a top driver. Indeed, there are whispers of a mega offer from the German team for the three-time world champion.
