Marko: 'Verstappen is really not going to drive faster from shouting Dutch fans'.

Next week the Formula 1 for the first Grand Prix since the outbreak of the coronavirus will be on a circuit. So on the Red Bull Ring they have quite a responsibility to make sure this goes smoothly and safely. Helmut Marko is confident that this will work out.

Marko sees the baptism of fire for Formula 1 on Red Bull's home circuit as an opportunity to show just how good their organisation is. "I'm happy that we can do it here, because it will allow us to set an example for all the other circuits for the rest of this season," he said to Kleine Zeitung.

In terms of performance on the track, Red Bull Racing's advisor is also positive. The fact that there won't be thousands of Dutch people present to encourage Max Verstappen doesn't change that. "Max always drives on the limit. He's not going any faster from that shouting along the side."

The speed will depend entirely on the car and in that area the team leaves nothing to chance. "We've been working on the car 24 hours a day for the past few weeks. I think we've taken out all the weaknesses", Marko said.
