Wolff on Verstappen to Red Bull

Toto Wolff has a seat he needs to fill at Mercedes for 2025, and Max Verstappen is one name that has been linked to the vacancy.

Verstappen's future at Red Bull was uncertain around the time of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, as he hinted that if Helmut Marko left the team, he would consider doing so as well as Red Bull dealt with the ongoing power struggle within the team and the Christian Horner allegations, which he denied.

Verstappen appeared to hint that his future remained at Red Bull until his contract expires in 2028 in Australia, but Wolff has insisted that a link-up with the Dutchman "needs to happen."
