Mercedes’ Verstappen incident appeal a shame

Ralf Schumacher says it’s “a shame” that the epic Mercedes versus Red Bull battle for the 2021 world championship is spilling into an off-track war. A statement said “new evidence” has come to light that was previously “unavailable to the stewards at the time of their decision”. Indeed, Mercedes’ Toto Wolff had hit out at F1 race director Michael Masi and the stewards’ “embarrassing” decision not to penalise Red Bull’s Verstappen for running himself and Hamilton off the track without contact. Schumacher said Mercedes’ decision to request a review is “somewhat understandable” given the importance that a retrospective penalty might have to the outcome of the championship.
