Mercedes would love to team up Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton one day. Verstappen is one of the brightest talents on the grid thanks to his performances for Red Bull.
Red Bull driver manager Dr Helmut Marko has admitted that that Mercedes boss Toto Wolff regularly calls Verstappen and his father Jos.
“Toto Wolff calls him and his father repeatedly and has done for months,” Marko said.
However, Marko is confident Verstappen will stay at Red Bull.
“I’m relaxed,” Marko insisted. “The clause in Max’s contract should be safe, and he feels comfortable with us.
“If we provide him with a material capable of winning the world championship, I’m not worried that he will go.”
