Max Verstappen is ‘a TIME BOMB’, warns Red Bull chief Helmut Marko, with the world champion ready to blow after a frustrating start to the season with two retirements from the first three races

Red Bull chief Helmut Marko insists his team have to start getting back to consistent winning ways again soon to prevent a wave of fury coming from lead driver Max Verstappen. Having been part of the Red Bull F1 programme since making his debut with the team’s sister outfit Toro Rosso (now AlphaTauri) in 2015, Marko believes that Verstappen has become calmer and matured more as he has grown into one of the fastest drivers on the grid and learned to deal with setbacks. ‘He is a lot calmer,’ Marko said after Verstappen’s most recent mechanical related retirement in Melbourne. Verstappen and Red Bull will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend at Imola for the fourth round of the season of the forecasted 23 race campaign.
