Max Verstappen could face three-place grid penalty for Qatar GP in huge boost to Lewis Hamilton’s chances

MAX VERSTAPPEN is facing a grid penalty for tomorrow’s Qatar GP for failing to slow down for warning flags. Verstappen, who qualified in second behind title rival Lewis Hamilton, would now likely face a grid drop if found guilty by the stewards. While there is no set punishment for Verstappen’s failure to slow, when Hamilton was found guilty of a similar offence in Austria in 2020, he was demoted three grid places. Should Verstappen be served the same fate, then it means he will start the race in fifth place, having qualified in second. Verstappen was less enthusiastic as he said: “I think we’re just lacking a bit of pace, it’s just been a bit more tricky for us.
