Red Bull accuses judges. “Different rules apply to different people”

Emotions began to spread, however, in Saudi Arabia. Sunday’s race has sparked a lot of controversy, which has surfaced recently every time Verstappen and Hamilton compete. This time the Dutchman was punished by the judges twice. First for overtaking his rival off the track, then for braking just ahead of the Brit.

The representatives of the Verstappen team definitely disagree with these decisions. In addition, they accuse the judges of supporting Hamilton. – The regulations make it clear that you cannot take a break of more than 10 cars length when driving behind the safety car. Meanwhile, Hamilton did it. That’s why it was better able to heat the tires before the restart, Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko told Servus TV. – We want to prove it with the data. It seems that different rules apply to different people, ‘Marko added.

The Austrian also does not agree with the judges’ opinion on the braking situation. It was all Hamilton’s fault, he stated. – He misjudged the situation. On top of that, it also had an impact on our pace because we had a cut in the rear tire and Max couldn’t push at that pace anymore – concluded Marko.
