Red Bull Motorsport Consultant Helmut Marko commented on rumors that Nick de Vries could be fired from AlphaTauri. The Austrian specialist confirmed that he was dissatisfied with the results of the Dutch rider, but he still has time to correct the situation.
Helmut Marko: Nothing will happen in the next three races. We spoke with de Vries, and he agrees with our assessment that he needs to improve. The lag behind partner Yuki Tsunoda, who does an excellent job, is too great. Speaking in football terms, Nick received a yellow card, but not yet a red one. If he adds, then the replacement theme will disappear by itself.
At worst, we will turn to our young talent pool. In particular, I’m talking about Liam Lawson and Ayume Iwas. Riccardo is out of the question.
Marco added that he is not considering Mick Schumacher for AlphaTauri: “He is a Mercedes driver and is not in our plans. Accordingly, Toto Wolff is responsible for him.”
Helmut Marko remembered the Mercedes reserve driver for a reason. The German press writes that Toto Wolff is actively looking for a place for Mick. Allegedly, he had already suggested to the head of Williams James Vowles to replace Logan Sargent with Meek, without waiting for the end of the season. In any case, if the replacement happens, it will be after a series of built stages, which will begin next week in Imola.
