Max Verstappen, extend a contract with Red Bull Racing until the end of 2020, made it clear that was not going to go to Mercedes or Ferrari in the near future, despite all the rumors.
“Lewis Hamilton is firmly entrenched in the Mercedes and Sebastian Vettel – Ferrari – said Verstappen in an interview with Algemeen Dagblad. I don’t want to be the second number, and it is better to walk away than agree to that. I don’t think they want me to be their partner. For example, Hamilton and Alonso in McLaren, we have seen what the possible problems when the team two leader.”
