Max Verstappen's manager holds crunch meeting with Thai Red Bull bosses in Dubai

“That’s what I focus on. I focus on the performance, I’m happy, and when I go home I don’t think about any other thing because it’s pretty fixed where I am. And that’s also where I want to be.”

Verstappen will be less impressed with the performance of his car in Australia, however, having retired early for the first time in two years due to a right rear brake issue that is being investigated by the team.

And rumours surrounding Verstappen’s future will continue until clarification is made over key figures within the Red Bull hierarchy.

His manager meeting with the team’s Thai bosses only fuels such speculation and will encourage Mercedes and Aston Martin to continue in their efforts to sign Verstappen.
