For a few days the former Austrian driver Helmut Marko, counselor of Red Bull, is news for its position in front of the coronavirus. Last week he said that it would be nice if the dutch Max Verstappen, the star of the team Dietrich Mateschitz, get infected with COVID-19 to get rid of the fear of the virus. Now he redoubled the bet: wants to organize a camp so that all the riders of the brand have this disease to be immunized.
“The idea was to organize a camp to take advantage of the downtime in which to work on the mental and physical part. That would be the ideal time for the infection to reach them ", analyzed Marko in an interview with the Austrian channel ORF.
“We have four Formula 1 drivers (Max Verstappen, Alex Albon, Pierre Gasly and Daniil Kvyat) and eight or ten juniors. They are all strong young people in very good health. That way, they would be prepared for when the action starts. ", Agregó.
Although the former driver is very influential within the team and he owes the discovery of great pilots who have contributed to its success, as Sebastian Vettel or Vertappen himself, this time he turned a deaf ear to his proposal. "Let's put it this way: the idea was not well received"confirmed.
