I don’t think I can just choose, because things are still largely out of my control” He then spoke about the first possibility “I’ve been in talks with Williams for a very long time and I happened to be able to make my debut there. So that could be a logical step” He confirmed that he is in talks with Alpine as well “With Alpine I have been talking since July, and for that team I will also be testing in Budapest next week” He then admitted he met Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko last week “As the media have already noted, I was in Austria last week to meet Dr Marko and talk to him about the future. So those are the facts at the moment” He signed off by suggesting that he would be happy regardless of where he ends up as long as he gets a seat “Wherever I will possibly get a seat, I will be very happy with that, but we now have to see how the situation develops in the coming days to weeks” Fast Feed McLaren’s Lando Norris indicated that “Daniel [Ricciardo] can help me in certain situations and I can sometimes help him” [Motorsport Magazin] “We have that discussion every weekend.

It’s bumpy, it’s a street track, so it’s a much different challenge” Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto feels that they don’t “need to replace people, but [they] need to do something” [Sky F1] “Looking at the way we communicate and the way we make decisions… Changes are needed” “In any case, replacing people is not a path I want to go down. That is an old way of solving problems” Which team would suit Nyck de Vries the best?
