brundle bundle Martin Brundle blasts FIA after Lewis Hamilton’s disqualification from US Grand Prix as he questions ‘grey area’Sky Sports icon reckons spots huge blunder in FIA rules after Brit was disqualified

EX-FORMULA ONE star Martin Brundle has questioned the FIA after Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc were disqualified from the US Grand Prix. The Mercedes and Ferrari drivers were two of four stars picked for random spot checks after the race. However, with half of the selected cars failing to stay legal, it led Sky Sports presenter Brundle to question why the FIA did not then check the remaining 17 cars which finished the race. “After the race four cars were checked, including [Max] Verstappen’s Red Bull and [Lando] Norris’ McLaren, and both Hamilton’s Mercedes and Leclerc’s Ferrari were found to have too much wear, for which the only remedy is disqualification, however minimal the indiscretion. He continued: “The next big question, however, is that if 50 per cent of the tested cars failed, then shouldn’t all the finishers have been checked? “It must be said that the FIA checks pre and post-race are beyond comprehensive.
