Red Bull’s Helmut Marko Praises Liam Lawson’s Impressive F1 Debut and Potential
Liam Lawson’s early foray into Formula 1 has left a lasting impression on the person whose opinion matters most at Red Bull, Dr. Helmut Marko. The Kiwi racer’s unexpected entry into the AlphaTauri team midway through the Dutch Grand Prix weekend was met with a remarkable display of skill and adaptability.
Lawson assumed the second AlphaTauri AT04 seat alongside Yuki Tsunoda after Daniel Ricciardo’s unfortunate hand injury during a crash at Zandvoort. Despite the sudden switch, Lawson showcased his composure and finesse throughout a challenging Zandvoort weekend, deftly handling the ever-changing weather conditions and bringing his car home safely.
