During the closing stages of the season in Abu Dhabi, the words of Red Bull Racing head Christian Horner, who claimed that Lewis Hamilton representatives had approached him with a proposal to discuss possible cooperation, were discussed in the paddock. Champion team advisor Helmut Marko mentioned two reasons why Lewis’ performance at Red Bull Racing is impossible.
“Christian informed me of the situation and showed me a text message he had received,” Helmut Marko said. “But I immediately said to him: “The Hamilton-Max combination simply doesn’t work.” In 2021, there was too much interaction and, shall we say, tension between them.
The second reason is that we cannot afford to have two such expensive riders in the team. So Max and Lewis will never play together in our team. That’s what I said to Christian: “No way.”
