Ban fear Five F1 stars at risk of being BANNED in 2023 including Verstappen as Gasly and Russell hit out at flawed penalty system

AS many as five Formula One stars could be BANNED from racing during the 2023 season including world champion Max Verstappen. It’s due to a number of drivers being close to the limit of penalty points allowed on their Super Licence. F1 stars are allowed to pick up 12 penalty points over a rolling 12-month period before they must serve an automatic one-race ban. “I don’t think it can be in the interest of the sport that we suddenly have five banned drivers or, in the worst case, a World Championship without one of the main drivers being able to compete at all. As it stands, Gasly is most at risk from a ban with 10 penalty points on his licence. Russell himself sits on just four points, which is one more than McLaren’s Lando Norris.
