Red Bull advisor Dr. Helmut Marko says George Russell is “only 41 points behind Verstappen”, and “if Mercedes suddenly dominates everything again, then Hamilton will also come back”.

In a talk with the Österreich newspaper, Dr Helmut Marko was asked if Red Bull has already chilled their championship champagne for 2022.

“Nonsense,” Marko said.

“I just calculated it: fifteen races we still have ahead of us. Even Russell is only 41 points behind Verstappen. Everything is still possible.”

He then added that neither George Russell nor Lewis Hamilton can be ruled out from the title fight.

“Their car is getting faster every day, their fastest top times are already at our level or even better. So you really can’t write them off.

“If Mercedes suddenly dominates everything again, then Hamilton will also come back,” the Austrian concluded.
