Marko hints at Kvyat exit

The end of Daniil Kvyat's Formula 1 career now seems imminent. Yuki Tsunoda has been tipped to replace the Russian and Helmut Marko has dropped the latest hint regarding the Alpha Tauri driver.

Tsunoda the only one with a shot

Helmut Marko didn't say anything about next year's driver choice, but he did go into the options for 2021 when he spoke to Sky Sports Germany.

"At the moment we only have one driver who is a candidate for a F1 seat, that is Yuki Tsunoda. He is planned for Alpha Tauri, he just needs to score the necessary points for the super license," he responded to the question of which drivers from Red Bull's training program have a chance of winning a place in Formula 1. 

Other talented drivers within Red Bull are Liam Lawson and Jüri Vips. Lawson is currently driving Formula 3 at Hitech Grand Prix and is driving in the Toyota Racing Series, in which he is once again driving for M2 Competition. Vips is driving in Super Formula in Japan and also drove a number of Formula 2 races this season as a replacement for Sean Gelael at DAMS. However, according to Marko, they are not currently candidates. "They are at least a year away from that," said Marko.
