For now, it’s open to see who will plant Red Bull next to Max Verstappen in 2021.

Alexander Albon was given the opportunity to prove it until the end of the season, but in terms of expected results and experience, Sergio Perez, who was forced to leave Racing Point, would be the optimal choice, other aspects Nico Hülkenberg, who is looking for a chance to return, will also be promoted to a chance.

The 33-year-old German pilot was a guest on Red Bull’s Servus TV on Monday – could that mean something too? – and reacted as follows when asked about the contractual situation:

“Yes, I did sign!” He said, then clarified that he was joking, just signing the contract for his new bank savings account.

“I can’t report anything else. The rumors have been a bit quieter lately, I think it will take some more time for them to make an announcement, ”he said seriously.

“But I’m not excited because the decision is not in my hands. I just have to be ready, and then if I don’t (Red Bull), I hope there’s another way back. You just have to wait patiently for a decision. ”

“Of course, I’m in touch with people who know what’s going on, but we don’t talk every week, especially not on a daily basis. And of course I have helpers, but basically I keep in touch, ”he explained.
