Schumacher: 'He won't be topic of conversation at Red Bull anymore'

Now that the 2020 season is officially over and there is still no clarity about the future of Alexander Albon's seat at Red Bull, Ralf Schumacher gives his prediction for the decision, which is expected this month. 

The team of Christian Horner and Helmut Marko has a difficult task ahead of them: who should replace the underperforming Albon as second driver? Michael Schumacher's brother thinks that his fellow countryman Nico Hulkenberg is definitely out of the picture. 

At Sky Sports Schumacher explains: "As a German, I would of course like to say something else, but I can't imagine that Hulkenberg is still in the picture at Red Bull ... He won't be an important topic of conversation there."

Perez stands a better chance

The great alternative to Red Bull comes in the form of Sergio Perez, brand new race winner at Sakhir. Schumacher also gives Perez a bigger chance to win the seat at Red Bull. "I think he has a bigger chance to take over Albon's seat," says Schumacher. Schumacher is also not in favour of Albon staying on. He says: "Albon has shown that he doesn't belong there."
