Red Bull F1 boss, ‘Gathrie’s successor’, praises Schumacher, ‘I don’t want to say it yet’. Why does Uncle Ralph say Herta is not worthy of AlphaTauri? – Top news

NEXT… F1 Schedule

Oscar Piastri has decided to make his F1 debut at McLaren next year, and the “silly season” is gathering pace.

Alpine, owned by Renault, appears to be correct on speculation that they want Frenchman Pierre Gasly to sit in the seat which has suddenly become vacant.

Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko said Gasly “has a valid contract until 2023”, but added: “But there are discussions between the two”.

The “discussion” is clearly about financial compensation to get Gasly.

“If our conditions are met, we will not interfere with Gasly,” Marko told Sky Deutschland.

“It would be a dream come true for him to drive for a French factory team, but not all the criteria are met yet.

■Who is Guthrie’s successor candidate?

If so, who will replace Guthrie? Marko denied that Mick Schumacher is a candidate.

“Franz Tost is close to him (Mick Schumacher) and trusts him,” Marko told Sport1.

“But as long as Mick Schumacher is in the Ferrari support program we will not do business with him.”

Schumacher, 23, declined to say on Thursday whether he had ever been fired from Ferrari’s academy. This fuels the rumor even more.

Another rumor is that IndyCar star Colton Herta could get a seat.

“I’m already thinking about who will replace Gasly, but I don’t want to announce it yet because some junior teams have super licenses,” Marko said.

When asked if Schumacher leaving Ferrari training would change things, he added: “We have our own program, so of course our hope is our own drivers.”

“He got off to a bad start this year, but he got better and better. His speed at Silverstone, for example, was very impressive, if still a bit erratic,” Marco said.

Why does Ralf Schumacher say that Herta is not suitable for AlphaTauri?

But as Schumacher’s uncle Ralf predicted, American Herta (son of famed former IndyCar driver Brian Herta) would not fit AlphaTauri.

“Marketing is marketing, but sport is sport,” says Ralph. “I still want to use the existing market”

“I don’t want to deny the youngster, but he was tested at McLaren after all, and if he had a blast he would be in the car now, not Piastri,” he said.
