Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are mentioned more and more in the media. Recently, there has been a great deal of talk about the fact that this Ferrari duo has become dissatisfied with the team and that they are considering moving on to other teams in the future.
After such rumors have spread, however, there are many people who are skeptical about such rumors. Helmut Marko is one of them. He believes that such rumors do not make sense and that he sees no reason why this duo would be dissatisfied.
“Today, anyone can more or less post something on the internet. Reports can no longer be controlled,”-Helmut Marko told SPORT1, as quoted by crash.net “Why should Ferrari part with Carlos? That doesn’t make any sense.
Carlos is doing a good job. Ferrari has other problems than thinking about Sainz”.
Helmut Marko on Charles Leclerc's contract
As Leclerc's current contract expires at the end of 2024, many are wondering if there will be a renewal of cooperation between him and Ferrari following the end of his current contract.
There is not much Helmut Marko knows about it, but he has a fairly good understanding of the clauses in Formula 1. In Leclerc's contract, there seems to be a clause that ensures that his contract will automatically be renewed as long as he achieves a satisfactory result.
“These performance clauses are common today,”-Marko continued. “It roughly states that a driver must have a certain number of points at a certain time of the season, usually in late summer, so that the contract is automatically renewed.
If this is not the case, both parties have the opportunity to dissolve the contract. For this reason, our Sebastian Vettel was able to switch to Ferrari so easily in 2015”. It will be interesting to follow the outcome of this situation.
