Red Bull gathering evidence for Hamilton protest

Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko is worried that Lewis Hamilton’s current level of performance will cost Max Verstappen his first Formula 1 title. A fresh engine in Brazil – despite the back-of-the-grid penalty – powered Mercedes’ Hamilton to a dominant win, closing his points gap to the Dutchman to 14 points. “But only Hamilton has this speed – the other Mercedes drivers are no cause of concern for us,” the 78-year-old Austrian added. “If Hamilton is just as superior in Qatar and then Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, we can write off the title,” Marko said. “But there will only be a protest when we have evidence that something about Hamilton’s car does not comply with the rules,” Marko added.
