Red Bull and Ferrari can be amused by the crazy goings-on in the “Silly Season”. The two top teams formula 1 can lean back. Their cockpits are occupied for years.
Or makes its way in the formula 1 about a tremor? Despite his long-term contract, Max Verstappen is said to be flirting with driving for Ferrari at some point. Now a report speaks of an initial contact.
Formula 1: What happens between Verstappen and Ferrari?
Verstappen to Ferrari? That would be a quake in the premier class! Hardly imaginable. After all, the Dutchman is tied to Red Bull until 2028.
Nevertheless, there should be movement in this highly explosive matter. Apparently there was first contact between the Scuderia and Jos Verstappen. This is reported by the Italian portal “Moto” and refers to an unnamed insider source.
Jos Verstappen has contact with Ferrari
Max and his father and adviser Jos are not looking at the next season or the one after that. According to the report, they want to explore the future options of the reigning world champion. A premature change before the end of the contract should be a conceivable scenario.

The contracts of both Ferrari drivers will end at the end of 2024. Whether Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz will be extended may not only depend on their performance – but also on the possibility of landing Max Verstappen.
