George Russell opens door for Red Bull talks with striking admission – ‘I wouldn’t say no’

“Russell is certainly worth considering with the performances he is now showing at Williams,” Marko told

“The only thing is, that’s so Utopian, because if Mercedes let him go, that would be such a faux pas, that I honestly can’t imagine it.”

Marko added that he is anticipating a Mercedes approach for Russell ahead of next season, and when asked if Red Bull will make an offer if the move does not come to fruition, he replied: “If I am informed correctly, then that is not relevant.”

Russell has poured cold water on the idea of him being announced as a Mercedes driver this weekend though.
