With the success story provided by Max Verstappen for the Red Bull junior programme, Motorsport Advisor Helmut Marko has ‘given up’ on finding the next star of similar talent.
Red Bull Motorsport Advisor Helmut Marko has admitted that he doesn’t expect to find another driver as talented as Max Verstappen. Oliver Goethe, the latest junior signing for Red Bull, will make his debut in Red Bull colors at the Macau Grand Prix. Goethe, a 19-year-old German who resides in London and Monte Carlo, had a successful season in F3 for Trident, finishing eighth, and previously won the Euroformula title. Marko praised Goethe as a good driver but stated that he doesn’t expect him to reach the level of Verstappen or Sebastian Vettel. Ultimately, Marko stated that he would be satisfied if they could find a future Grand Prix winner.
