Robert Schwartzman – champion of the Toyota Racing Series. Why it is really an outstanding result?
“Mercedes I worked two years ago in Formula 4. We had good contact, but had not developed because of the team for which I played. I then moved to another category, and everything died down, Robert said the radio station “Sport FM” in the program “100% Speed”. – When it was negotiating with Ferrari, I was approached by Jos Verstappen [consultant to Red Bull in search of young talents and working with them]. He said I show good results, so they wish I joined Red Bull, but I refused”.
