Red Bull chief Helmut Marko doubles down on Lewis Hamilton disadvantage claim

Asked about his age-related comments in a recent interview with Austrian newspaper Osterreich, Marko doubled down in his assessment that a downturn in output is imminent.

After being told his remarks on Hamilton’s age had caused controversy, Marko replied: “If you look at the performance pyramid in relation to age, then it’s kind of logical, isn’t it?”

It’s not just rival teams the Mercedes man has to watch out for, either, as the head of Red Bull’s driver development program remarked new team-mate George Russell will pose problems.

Unlike previous partner Valtteri Bottas, Marko said, “Russell will certainly not accept the number two role” despite still being a relatively new name in F1.
