Marko rules incident between Verstappen and Hamilton 'Unnecessary'

Helmut Marko is cautiously optimistic about Friday's United States Grand Prix but warns that it will be a tough weekend. Furthermore, Marko is not surprised about the incident between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton in FP2.

The Austrian already expressed his optimism after FP2. According to Marko Red Bull has taken a step forward after the first free practice. "That gap of almost a second in the first practice, that has clearly shrunk," he told the German branch of Sky Sports.

"It's going to be a tough race this weekend, but it's not as clear on the side of Mercedes as we thought before," Marko concludes. On the moment between Verstappen and Hamilton, he says the following: "We've had that more often during the season. That those two won't have dinner together more often, we know that anyway, but I think it's unnecessary."

Conversation with Ferrari team boss

Earlier today, Marko, Christian Horner and Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto could be seen talking to each other in the paddock. Marko didn't want to reveal anything about the subject of the meeting and joked that it was about DTM.
