Verstappen to top Mercedes’ 2022 driver wish-list

Max Verstappen will be “at the top of the list” if Mercedes needs to replace Lewis Hamilton for 2022, according to Red Bull boss Christian Horner. “I am sure that should Lewis decide to stop, Max will naturally be the driver at the top of the list,” Horner said on Monday. Horner did, however, play down the significance of Marko’s revelation about the Verstappen performance clause. “As with all these things, it is not about forcing a driver that doesn’t want to be there,” he said. “The relationship with Max is very strong, he believes in the project and what we are doing, he sees the investment that Red Bull is making,” Horner added.
