Who will take the seat next to Max Verstappen for the 2021 season?
Sources are saying the decision is already made and Albon will have to leave the team. The Thai driver has not performed as expected and RedBull will need a driver that can secure points for the team making sure the money keeps flowing before the new regulations for 2022 and forward.
So, who will then take the seat next to Max Verstappen? Nico Hulkenberg is close at hand, free to join at any time and no doubt a very good driver. But is he good enough and will he be a good team mate to Max? Well at this stage we believe Redbull don´t care much about that as their first priority is to make sure the team is a s successful as possible or they will lose Max to another team already in 2022/2023.
RedBull now has both an engine problem and a driver problem, two very important factors in bringing the car over the finish line in style
