Red Bull not putting pressure on Perez says Marko

Dr Helmut Marko has denied that Red Bull is “trying to put pressure” on Sergio Perez. Towards the end of the season, it became clear that the relationship – or the appearance of a relationship – between Max Verstappen and Perez was breaking down. Verstappen then suggested Perez was struggling to adjust to his de-facto number 2 role. “I’m not going to name names, but you have to accept your role,” the Dutchman said. However, top team official Marko said Australian Ricciardo has mainly been brought on board in a marketing role. “We must not forget that we are a very, very big team,” said the Austrian.
