Reigning F1 champion Max Verstappen has an ‘ESCAPE clause’ in his new £40m-a-year mega deal, reveals Red Bull chief Helmut Marko… but only if they experience a ‘crash’ like 2014 when they had ‘absolutely no chance’ of competing for titles

Max Verstappen has an ‘escape clause’ in his bumper Red Bull contract should the team become non-competitive in the title race in years to come, reveals Helmut Marko. If there was to be a repeat of that momentum shift in the years to come, Verstappen does have a way out, according to Marko. Marko added that Verstappen’s appeal is the ‘link’ that could get other manufacturers to partner with Red Bull in future seasons should he keep on winning. It was therefore important for Red Bull to be able to say that we have committed the best driver to our team until 2028.
