Lando Norris aims swipe at FIA ahead of crunch finale in Abu Dhabi as McLaren star jokes that he will brake test rival Charles Leclerc because there is ‘only a 10-second penalty’ following Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton drama in Saudi Arabia

Lando Norris has taken aim at Formula One’s stewards after joking that he will brake test Charles Leclerc in Abu Dhabi this weekend following Max Verstappen’s 10-second penalty in Saudi Arabia. Tensions boiled over on lap 37 after Verstappen slowed down dramatically following an order to allow Hamilton to pass. The seven-time world champion accused the Red Bull star of ‘brake testing’ him – where drivers suddenly slow down after applying the brakes – and the FIA handed Verstappen a 10-second penalty for the incident. And McLaren star Norris has taken a swipe at the incident – and the subsequent punishment – as we inch towards what is a guaranteed to be a thrilling finale in Abu Dhabi with Verstappen and Hamilton level on 369.5 points.
