Mercedes chief Toto Wolff is adamant he has not been in contact with Max Verstappen regarding a move to the Silver Arrows.
Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko claimed Wolff had been speaking to Verstappen and his father Jos for months and intimated Mercedes were trying to make a move for the young Dutchman.
However, Wolff says he speaks with old friend Jos about things aside from Formula One and the Silver Arrows are not in the process of poaching Max in the near future. “I haven’t got Max’s number and I’ve never had him on the phone,” Wolff said. “As Max said rightly, I’ve known Jos a long time, I respect him and consider him a friend.

We talk about babies and go-karting, and when do we put our baby kids in a go-kart and which team are we going to set up. There is no talking about Max nor his contract.
“For the right reasons Max is very committed to the Honda-Red Bull situation, and rightly so. “We are committed to our drivers. We are not planning to engage in any sort of discussions, nor do Jos or Max, so I don’t know where that came from.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
