From Vries to Red Bull? This Friday he had talks with Marko

Motorsport.com’s sister publication Motorsport-Total.com has been told by various sources that Nyck de Vries paid a visit to the Red Bull boss’s office in Graz on Friday afternoon . There is no information on the content of the conversation, but it is clear that De Vries is in Marko’s crosshairs after his spectacular Formula 1 debut at Monza.

The driver unexpectedly had to replace Alexander Albon, suffering from appendicitis, at last weekend’s Italian Grand Prix . De Vries was able to start in the top ten and held that position for most of the race. In the end, he took ninth place, taking a third of Williams’ points standings in the constructors’ championship.

Red Bull lobbied for weeks to get a super license for Colton Herta . Speaking to this website on Friday, Marko confirmed that Red Bull had abandoned that battle . Herta’s arrival was linked to the possible departure of Pierre Gasly, who will become Fernando Alonso’s successor at Alpine. Red Bull acknowledged in Zandvoort that its wishes to let Gasly go had not yet been fulfilled, but the formation now seems willing to facilitate the Frenchman’s departure if a worthy replacement is found.

Williams and Alpine also show interest

The arrival of De Vries would be a victory for Marko. De Vries was a junior driver in the Mercedes program for many years, but now that the Formula E season is over he no longer has any contractual obligations to the brand.

The 27-year-old is also interested in Alpine, in case Pierre Gasly can’t make the switch. It is planned that this month it will carry out a test with the 2021 car of the French brand. Herta was going to drive the Alpine during the same test, but it has now been cancelled.

Williams is also interested in de Vries as a replacement for Nicholas Latifi , but team boss Jost Capito said after the Monza performance that the driver “has to make his own decision on that”.
