Formula One’s governing body the FIA issued Helmut Marko with an official warning over comments made towards the Red Bull adviser’s driver, Sergio Perez. The former driver originally made the comments at the Italian Grand Prix, and was accused of xenophobia when he appeared to link Perez’s uneven form on the track to his ethnicity. As drivers gathered in Singapore for this weekend’s grand prix, seven-time world champion was one of the most vocal parties to criticise Marko’s remarks. Perez, who sits second in the drivers’ standings a long way off his world champion team-mate Verstappen, has for his part accepted an apology from Marko. Knowing the person helps a lot, because I know he doesn’t mean it that way.
