Kravitz 'baffled' by Horner-Marko Red Bull RIFT reports

Red Bull may be champions yet again but all may not be smooth sailing behind the scenes at Milton Keynes.

A report from oe24 in Austria has claimed that Helmut Marko was on the brink of leaving the team after a falling out with team principal Christian Horner.

At the United States GP in Austin, Texas, Sky Sports reporter Ted Kravitz brought the latest but even he could not believe that report.

Marko's contract with Red Bull comes to an end at the conclusion of the 2024 season but he has no intention of leaving despite this supposed rift between him and Horner.

Kavitz: Horner and Marko 'as tight as cheese'

Ted Kravitz knows a lot about the inner workings of the F1 teams but can't understand this report

"We’ve never seen any evidence of any row between Christian Horner and Helmut Marko. They’re tight as cheese together. They’re tight buddies, they’re still having lunch together," Kravitz said on The Notebook on Sky Sports.

"When Helmut Marko was interviewed, I think by an Austrian newspaper, oe24, he was asked about a rumoured rift between him and Christian Horner, which I didn’t know was a thing and he said ‘I have a contract with Red Bull until…’

"So to be clear even though he is the Director of Red Bull Racing, Helmut Marko. He is employed by Red Bull. ‘I have a contract with Red Bull until the end of next year. When and how I stop, when it is over, I decide and not, for example, Mr Horner.’

"How is he exposed to some massive rift that doesn’t look like it is a rift with Christian Horner? It’s all rather baffling."
