Daniel Ricciardo still feels it is “quite early” to confirm his Red Bull future, even though team principal Christian Horner has confirmed they are in talks with the Aussie to extend his current deal.
Red Bull adviser Dr Helmut Marko has revealed that Max Verstappen “asked” to extend his Red Bull deal through to the end of the 2020 season.
Max Verstappen is the third driver to be penalised ahead of the United States GP weekend with news that he’s taking a final power unit for this season.
Lewis Hamilton topped both practice sessions on Friday, with Red Bull emerging as the second quickest. Sebastian Vettel was unable to get into a rhythm due to various set-up changes.
Talk of Max Verstappen heading to Mercedes or Ferrari will have to wait after he extended his commitment to Red Bull until the end of 2020.
