Helmut Marko indicated earlier this week that he had filled three of the four seats by 2021. Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda are expected to form the line-up at AlphaTauri. As a teammate of Max Verstappen at Red Bull, Alex Albon’s position is under great pressure. The Grand Prix of the Eifel has not done the Thai driver any good and CEO Helmut Marko has now named Nico Hulkenberg as a possible replacement.
“We can name the names that are available, that are Hulkenberg and Perez,” said Marko at the German Sport1. “The question is how far they are from Max Verstappen’s level. We have comparison material in Daniel Ricciardo and can draw conclusions from that. I don’t think anyone will be closer than three tenths behind Max.”
“On a good day, Alex can be three tenths of Max”, Marko continues. “But if he can’t take the pressure, we can’t afford to stand on one leg. That’s not in the battle for a world championship. One good car doesn’t make you world champion.”
On Friday, Marko already had a conversation with Hulkenberg, because Albon’s corona test was unclear. If it had been positive, half the Dutchman would have already driven for Red Bull last weekend. Albon’s test turned out to be negative and Hulkenberg was still able to ride the Nrburgring as a replacement for the sick Lance Stroll.
