Sports consultant to Red Bull Helmut Marko said that Carlos Sainz, who plays for Toro Rosso is RBR reserve driver in case something happens to Daniel Riccardo or max Verstappen.
“We have a long-term contract with Carlos, and the situation that occurred in the Mercedes, showed how important it is to have a backup rider. Science – our backup pilot in case something happens,” said Marco in an interview with AS.
With regard to the objectives of the Toro Rosso in the upcoming season, Marco said: “Toro Rosso must make progress, so the goal is the fifth place in the constructors’ championship. The team has good potential, given the presence of such a specialist, as James Key, and the Renault engine.
In addition, a very good thing we left Sainz and Daniil Kvyat, it is possible to achieve stability. We have a strong team of the middle group”.
