ORone of the most critical voices Czech Prez in his first campaign with Red Bull was that of Helmut Marko, who has changed his mind in relation to the Mexican pilot, whom praised after the classification of the Grand Prix of Azerbaijan.

“Prez didn’t come out in front of Max as planned. First of all, there would have been a slipstream in sector 3 and there he was now behind a Mercedes, not everything was fitting. So, since the times of the sector: pole position was possible.” declared the adviser to the Red Bulls.

Helmut acknowledged that there was friction between Checo and Max due to the words of the Dutchman’s father: “There was a slight tension after Monaco. Jos Verstappen in particular, the father, made some comments that were not well founded and didn’t help.”

“But we had an argument Friday morning, with both Perez and Max, and then the two of them sat down. So everything is fine there. And the Mexican is on fire, as we say. He has never been so strong, so good in all sessions. And yes, now it’s between the two of us. They have the same material, the same conditions. May the best win,” he concluded.
