Oct.9 (GMM/Inautonews.com) As the engine crisis apparently deepens, the only man wearing a Red Bull uniform who does not seem worried is Max Verstappen.
The Dutch teen is among the hottest talents to have ever debuted in formula one, so he seems not overly fazed that his employer could be set to pull the plug.
“Whenever I’m walking down the paddock, people approach me,” 18-year-old Verstappen is quoted by UOL’s Grande Premio.
“I talk informally with everyone. I have had great performance and I think this will help me if Red Bull go,” he added.
“I’m not looking for job,” Verstappen continued, “I am very happy at Red Bull — they did so much for me, I’m here because of them, I have no reason to leave.
“If they did leave F1, the picture changes, but for now, I’m happy.”
