Red Bull’s advisor Dr Helmut Marko claims he told team boss Christian Horner there is “no way” that Lewis Hamilton can join Red Bull alongside Max Verstappen.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner recently came out with a story claiming that Lewis Hamilton contacted Red Bull earlier this year to inquire about a possible move to the Austrian team.

Hamilton has since completely denied this story, but Horner and Red Bull chose to stick by it. Now, Red Bull’s advisor Dr Helmut Marko says he was the one to tell Horner there’s “no way” Lewis can drive for the team.

“Christian informed me and showed me the text message he received,” Marko told Motorsport.

“But I told him, ‘Hamilton and Max, that doesn’t work’. There was too much action and how should I say, in 2021 – tension.

“And on the other hand, we cannot afford to have the two most expensive drivers in one team. It’s just never going to happen.

“So I told Christian: ‘No way,’” the Austrian concluded.
