Apart from Mercedes driver George Russell getting his maiden Grand Prix victory, Components 1’s greatest story after the São Paulo Grand Prix was the intra-team drama at Pink Bull Racing. Within the last lap of the race, Max Verstappen, who had already secured the 2022 World Championship, determined to disobey workforce orders to let teammate Sergio Pérez move and safe a second-place within the standings, citing he “had his causes.” That rumored reasoning for his insubordination, is why the FIA, says it’s now open to investigating a potential intentional crash in Monaco, reviews. 

Rumor within the F1 paddocks has it that Verstappen didn’t yield his place as a result of the Mexican driver deliberately crashed throughout Monaco Grand Prix qualifying, which secured Pérez third on the grid. The Dutch World Champion was driving on tempo for pole place, however Pérez’s crash prompted a crimson flag, ending the session. Verstappen began the race fourth, and Pérez went on to win the race.

Pink Bull Racing, Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez deny this rumor behind the disobeyed workforce order. FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem says the physique would look into the matter if an F1 workforce recordsdata a proper grievance.

Ben Sulayem said:

“I didn’t have anybody who stated we need to examine it from our facet. But when there’s something to be investigated, we’re more than pleased. One factor really I might say, I’m not shy or afraid of conducting or going into it if there is a matter. I cannot disguise. I might be even elevating my hand and saying [if] there is a matter with the FIA. In any other case, if I can’t do that, you’ll by no means enhance and by no means evolve. That I can assure.”

Whereas any workforce may file a grievance, one thing of that nature would usually come from the workforce most aggrieved by the incident — and that workforce can be Pink Bull. If Pérez did deliberately crash, it solely considerably impacted his personal squad and Max Verstappen. It’s uncertain that the Mexican driver deliberately crashed for third place on the grid.
