Alex Wurz says he detects “tension” between Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. Comparing Red Bull’s lineup with those of the other two top teams, the former driver and GPDA boss said Ricciardo and Verstappen are the most explosive.
“At Ferrari there is a clear division of roles,” the Austrian told Speed Week. “At Mercedes, it will be very difficult for Bottas to beat Hamilton. But at Red Bull, everything is much more open. It’s impossible to say how the rivalry will develop, but it will be extremely interesting. There is tension in the air,” Wurz added.
As for Ferrari’s lineup, Wurz thinks it’s possible that Kimi Raikkonen will remain beyond his 2018 contract.
