Toto Wolff has said there could yet be grounds for Mercedes to challenge Max Verstappen’s controversial title win over Lewis Hamilton in 2021. London lawyers acting for Massa believe the result should be scrubbed because, as has long been established, Renault ordered Nelsinho Piquet to crash to bring out the safety car, changing the course of the race so team-mate Fernando Alonso could win. ‘But it will set a precedent — whatever it is — and we’re looking from the sidelines with curiosity.’ If Massa gets his day in a London courtroom — a long shot — and wins, it would open a Pandora’s box for global sport, including F1’s 2021 finale.
