With news breaking that Red Bull Retains Verstappen Until 2023, it only further validates the importance of youth and a stable start to the new regulations of 2021.
Silly season swirl has already begun but this time around the implications are dramatic as most of the grid sits on expiring contracts. Much of the chatter has been about the top 4 finishers in the Drivers Championship thus far as teams look to secure their talent.
Today removes another one of those drivers from the conversation as Max Verstappen commits to Red Bull until 2023.
“With the challenge of the 2021 regulation changes on the horizon continuity in as many areas as possible is key. Max has proven what an asset he is to the team, he truly believes in the partnership we have forged with our engine supplier Honda, and we are delighted to have extended our relationship with him.
Verstappen At Red Bull Means Stability
Very proud and happy that @redbullracing will stay my home until 2023. We started this journey together and they have supported me from day 1. I want to win with @redbull and @HondaRacingF1, our goal is to fight for a World Championship together. The best is yet to come! #YesBoys pic.twitter.com/gal9QVTEFO— Max Verstappen (@Max33Verstappen) January 7, 2020

What Red Bull Retaining Verstappen COULD Mean
Here are two things I am going to follow closely after this news and find vastly more interesting:
- Adrian Newey could be up to something with the re-introduction of ground effects cars in 2021. Let’s not forget his work on the RB6, RB7, RB8, and one of the most dominant cars in F1 history – the RB9.
- I’ve had my doubts Toto Wolff was staying at Mercedes for the regulation changes set to commence in 2021. I think it makes a lot more sense for him to run Liberty and succeed Chase Carey. With both Max & Jos paying attention to that closely, this has me leaning toward Verstappen’s camp giving this idea credence, too.
