Early start for 2021 title mind games

The “mind games” between Formula 1’s title protagonists have begun tantalisingly early in 2021, according to former driver Ralf Schumacher. For instance, when considering a radio call made to Lando Norris in qualifying, Marko said he suspected McLaren was helping its engine supplier by potentially disturbing Verstappen’s lap. “Helmut Marko is a strong weapon for us because it doesn’t help your own team to see conspiracies everywhere you go,” Wolff said at the weekend. Then, in a press briefing with German media, Wolff said of the weekend: “It went well. Marko was also angry at the FIA after Sunday’s race, because Verstappen had an extra point taken away for setting the fastest lap due to a track limits violation. More generally, however, Marko is happy with how Verstappen’s season is going so far.
