Marko plays down Perez, Russell rumours

Red Bull has denied that it will rush to snap up Sergio Perez after the out-of-work Mexican secured his first Formula 1 race win in Bahrain last Sunday. After the last race in Abu Dhabi we will sit down and make the best possible decision.”. Marko also ruled out speculation that Red Bull might now make a move for George Russell, after the regular Williams driver almost won in Bahrain last Sunday at the wheel of Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes. “He certainly did a great job last Sunday, but quite a few drivers in the Mercedes would have done that too.”. Marko suggested that the biggest problem with Russell is his links to Mercedes. “Firstly, he is a Mercedes driver, and secondly he is managed by Toto Wolff,” said the Austrian.
