Marko rules out a Red Bull return for Vettel: He has no relevance for us

Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari were expected to combine to win Formula 1 world championships. The German driver has been in the Ferrari garage for five years and things are getting worse. On track, we see a frustrated and flustered Vettel, so will Vettel return to Red Bull?

Red Bull team advisor Helmut Marko puts it bluntly. 

"I have no idea what Vettel's future is. We had some wonderful years together, but we have our four drivers. Vettel has no relevance for us," Marko told

Max Verstappen is shining brightly as the new Red Bull flag bearer. Pierre Gasly didn't make a statement when he had his chance inside the Red Bull car and therefore the team have switched him over with Alex Albon. Marko says Albon has slotted in nicely after his summer break move. 

"He fits in well, makes a strong debut in Belgium and does what we expected him to do. He was fully there from the first lap. His commitment had nothing to do with the Thai co-owners of Red Bull. They never spoke. That's all up to us."
