Max Verstappen rubbishes Sergio Perez’s theory claiming that ‘miscommunication’ caused Red Bull’s team radio confusion in Jeddah – after nabbing fastest lap from his team-mate in the closing stages to hold on to his championship lead

Sergio Perez’s theory suggesting that ‘miscommunication’ caused Red Bull’s team radio confusion in Jeddah was rubbished by team-mate Max Verstappen on Thursday. Perez held fastest lap with a just few laps remaining in Jeddah and was on the cusp of leading the world championship for the very first time in his career, until Verstappen capitalised on some mixed messages over Red Bull’s team radio. After the race, Perez revealed he was told to ‘keep a certain pace’ on the final lap by his team rather than to push on and protect his fastest lap against Verstappen. There is a very high level of respect between each other in the team with all the engineers from his side, my side.
