Max Verstappen aims a dig at Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez, claiming the Canadian Grand Prix ‘would have been very different’ if he wasn’t racing – amid rising doubts over the Mexican’s future

Max Verstappen has criticised his team-mate Sergio Perez, suggesting that Red Bull’s performances in last week’s Canadian Grand Prix ‘would have been very different if he wasn’t there.’. The 33-year-old has also failed to make it into Q3 in his last three races, with his team-mate, a hard man to follow, finishing top of the rankings in each of those races. His form has now drawn criticism from Verstappen, who implied that he was carrying the team in light of Perez’s recent struggles. It’s something they [the team] maybe have to work on. He said: ‘We will have Ricciardo in the car for three days after Silverstone at the tyre test and then you can evaluate where Ricciardo really stands.’. ‘We discussed the race before the race and said, ‘Look, you are free to race today, but the rules of engagement are team first, respect each other, respect the cars that you are driving’.
