Marko defends Ferrari collaboration for DTM

Dr Helmut Marko has defended Red Bull’s collaboration with F1 rival Ferrari in order to advance the careers of its junior drivers. When Alex Albon was ousted from Red Bull’s F1 racing program at the end of last year, the energy drink outfit set up a DTM project – with the Ferrari 488 sports car as the basis. Dr Marko said despite Red Bull’s rivalry in Formula 1 with Ferrari, the DTM collaboration made sense. Similarly, Ferrari has also now decided to promote one of its own junior drivers – Callum Ilott – elsewhere. “I would like to thank the Ferrari driver academy for allowing me to take this opportunity and for Ricardo Juncos and Brad Hollinger for bringing me onboard the team.”.
