In his support, Red Bull Motorsport consultant Helmut Marko said the team’s junior team has not performed well enough this year.
Alfatauri needs to up their game, Marco says
Alfatauri has dropped to ninth in the championship this year, his result since competing for Toro Rosso in 2018. In an interview with Auto Motor & Sport, Marco said the team was undervalued.
“For capacity, technically and financially, the ninth level is unacceptable,” said Marco. “They made a lot of mistakes in strategy. The car was underpowered. At the moment we are in the process of evaluating and seeing which screws we need to turn.”
Oliver Mintzlaff, who took over the reins of Red Bull’s sports division following the death of Dietrich Matschitz in October, recognizes the team’s need for improvement, Marko said.
“First talks have taken place with our new boss Mr. Mintzlaff and everyone agrees that rebuilding a successful package like Red Bull Racing doesn’t make sense.
“There is Alfatauri where it is needed. This was unsatisfactory last year.
