Helmut Marko has revealed there is an exit clause in Max Verstappen’s new Red Bull deal should Honda leave Formula 1.
Verstappen signed a new deal with Red Bull, which will end in 2023.
“Generally speaking, it is a fixed contract and if everything goes in the right direction there will be no problems Marko told Motorsport-Magazin.com.
“We have a contract with Honda until 2021, but obviously being without an engine for the future it would complicate all our plans.
“Consequently, it is clear that we need a competitive engine to keep hold of Verstappen.”
