Marko: Alonso impossible to join Red Bull, cos of Honda!

Helmut Marko has ruled out hiring Fernando Alonso who has been linked to Red Bull several times during his career.

“Fernando Alonso’s return with Red Bull is absolutely impossible to imagine,” Marko said, speaking with Motorsport-Magazin.

“There are two reasons for that, first one is the relationship between Alonso and Honda,”

“The second reason, our entire F1 structure is based on our junior program, which means that our young talents move to the top,”

“If we signed Alonso, he would be the oldest driver on the grid and that would contradict our entire philosophy.

“But as we use a Honda engine, it is impossible anyway,” added Marko.
