Toto Wolff: “There is no reason to sign Verstappen”

Max Verstappen has been rumoured to make a shocking switch from Red Bull Racing to Mercedes for the 2020 Formula 1 season, however, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff insists there is no reason to sign him. Red Bull chief Helmut Marko claimed that Verstappen and his father Jose have been contacted on numerous occasions by Wolff over the last several months, but soon after Jos has moved to rubbish the claim. "When I heard that, I had to laugh," Wolff is quoted by Speed Week. "I don't have Max's number, so calling him would be difficult. What Max said is right. I talk to Jos regularly because I consider him a friend. We joke about when we are going to put our toddlers in karts for the first time, but we do not utter a syllable about Max or his contract. If we did three 1-2s in a row, there is no need to talk about our drivers. For the period after 2020, we will first talk to Valtteri and Lewis and only then consider other options. From my point of view, there is no reason to change the driver lineup we have currently.” Verstappen, who has a contract with Red Bull until 2020, insists he is happy.
