Daniel Ricciardo was the teammate of Verstappen for three years, but surprisingly enough the Australian switched to Renault.

A change to Mercedes or Ferrari

In the past, Max Verstappen was repeatedly associated with a switch to Mercedes or Ferrari. The Dutchman was dissatisfied with Red Bull and in particular the unreliable Renault engine. Several times he hasn’t reached the finish due to technical problems. But for Verstappen, it wasn’t possible to take this step yet. At Ferrari, four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel is under contract and Mercedes has Lewis Hamilton, who has now won the title five times. At Red Bull, Verstappen sees opportunities to become the first driver. He does feel comfortable in his current team. Team leader Christian Horner is very satisfied and is looking to build a team around Verstappen since Ricciardo’s departure.
