Verstappen wants to leave Red Bull and join Ferrari for 2019

Published

Formula 1 young sensation Max Verstappen has reportedly asked to leave his current team Red Bull Racing ahead of the 2019 season.

British online newspaper, The Independent reported that, Verstappen has asked to be released from his Red Bull contract to make it clear for him to join Ferrari. Ferrari has also reportedly interested in having Verstappen join the team alongside Sebastian Vettel for the 2019 season.

The Dutchman has suffering a difficult season, with four DNF in his last six races and that frustration boiled over in Azerbaijan.

Verstappen sighed “here we go again” as he was forced to pull out in Baku and then left the track early to go back to his hotel. He failed to attend the post-race press conference, putting him in breach of Article 19.4 of the Sporting Regulations stipulates that any driver who has failed to finish should report to the press in the specified area and was fined £23,000

And the anger he feels with his car and a lack of support is pushing him towards the exit door, with Verstappen looking to join Ferrari.

The Independent claims that, Pit lane sources told them, it increasingly appears to be a matter of “if, not when” the Belgian-born driver heads starts a new life based out of Maranello.
