Marko: 'Verstappen's victory the most beautiful moment at the Red Bull Ring'

Exactly ten years ago today the Red Bull Ring reopened under its current name. To celebrate the track's birthday Red Bull Racing advisor Helmut Marko looks back on his best moments of the past ten years.

Ten years of Red Bull Ring

Marko says the circuit is the ideal promoter of the region: "The tourist advertising almost writes itself here," he says in conversation with Krone. The 78-year-old from Graz says that there can be snow in the region as early as June, while there is a beautiful circuit in the valley.

"As I said, you can't design a TV commercial any better. What's more, the standard used here is almost unique in the world," Marko continues. The Red Bull Ring is responsible for the large media centre and top hotels near the circuit.

Highlight in Austria

As for Marko's absolute highlight at the Red Bull Ring, he doesn't have to think long: "Our first victory at Spielberg by Max Verstappen in 2019. That was the breakthrough with Honda." In 2019, Mercedes won the first eight races. Verstappen managed to win the ninth in amazing fashion and all in front of Red Bull's home crowd.
