F1 Podcast: Who would Mercedes drop to get Verstappen?

1 min read

Would Mercedes make space for Max Verstappen if he decided to join them in 2026 and if so who would it drop?

That's one of the many listener questions tackled on the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast with Edd Straw, Scott Mitchell-Malm and Ben Anderson.

There's also talk of whether George Russell's racecraft is letting him down and whether he's ready to lead Mercedes when Lewis Hamilton departs for Ferrari in 2025.

Later on there are questions about how long Verstappen will stay in F1, RB's driver conundrum and what tyres the safety car uses - as well as a surprise came from Glenn Freeman. No prizes for guessing talk of which driver prompts that!
