Now, you might think that the contract situation isn’t true. At the start of 2020, Max had confirmed that he had signed a new contract with Red Bull until the end of 2023 (a four year extension deal), But due to the current situation where honda will be departing at the end of 2021 rumors have spread that Max may have clauses in his contract.Turns out Max does have a performance clause in his contract, which could have him at the top of the list if Lewis Hamilton decides to Bow out.
