Poll: Will Jos Verstappen’s drama trigger Max’s Red Bull exit?

The question has been raised after what has unfolded at the Red Bull Ring this weekend.

Not for the first time this season there have been fireworks between Jos Verstappen and Red Bull team principal Christian Horner.

On this occasion, it was sparked by Verstappen's decision to withdraw from the Legends Parade at the Red Bull Ring after learning of Horner's apparent plans to stop him from driving Sebastian Vettel's title-winning RB8 from 2012. It is also understood that no filming or photography would be allowed.

Horner denied the claim, only for Verstappen to take the matter further when he claimed Horner had told him to "watch the brakes" should he drive the car, inferring potential sabotage.

Verstappen claimed he was "done with Horner", underlining the animosity he feels towards the Englishman after suggesting earlier this year Red Bull would implode if he continued at the helm in the wake of the texting scandal that took place.

Horner was investigated for improper conduct towards a female employee but later cleared.

This latest fallout has again sparked suggestions Max Verstappen could leave Red Bull despite a contract that runs through to the end of 2028, fuelled by a comment from his father.

Although the three-time F1 champion categorically stated on Thursday he would be at Red Bull in 2025, when asked if a move to Mercedes was 'not out of the question', Verstappen Sr replied: "Correct."
