Helmut Marko, the advisor to Red Bull, hopes that Nyck De Vries will be the one leading the AlphaTauri team from the very beginning. This comes as quite a surprise given the fact that 2023 will be a rookie season for the Dutch driver

Nyck de Vries won the 2019 F2 championship but couldn’t get promoted to F1 because of a lack of seats. He moved to Formula E and was again victorious with Mercedes in the 2020-21 Formula E season. 

The fact that he is a world champion in two different series and he was a test and reserve driver for Mercedes meant that he was in the loop to get a chance in F1. His chances skyrocketed when he produced a stellar performance at the Italian Grand Prix. 

He replaced Alex Albon at Williams as the Thai driver missed out the Italian GP due to medical reasons. He scored his first points at Monza itself and caught the eyes of many. AlphaTauri were very quick to replace their outgoing driver Pierre Gasly with Nyck de Vries. 

Out of Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc, George Russell, and Alex Albon, Nyck de Vries is 'possibly' the most successful go-kart driver.

Nyck De Vries is flattered by Helmut Marko’s compliment

Helmut Marko believes that due to the vast experience that de Vries has managed to gather across so many racing series. He will be the leader of the team from the get-go. 

Marko said, “Yuki is young and doesn’t have this experience and background, so [Nyck] should lead the team. We will see how it goes next year, but from the experience and the personality he has, he should be the team leader.”

Helmut Marko also commented that the fact that De Vries has been a reserve driver for Mercedes and almost all the Mercedes-powered teams will be a huge advantage to AlphaTauri. 

De Vries said that he appreciates Marko’s comments a lot and feels pretty confident about himself. “I’ll take it as a compliment,” said De Vries. He explained that it’s not always necessary that the experience one should have should always be in F1. Being a leader comes from character and personality.
