Red Bull suspects flexible Mercedes rear wing

Max Verstappen says he hopes Formula 1 stewards in Brazil enjoy “good expensive wine” after fining him EUR 50,000 for touching championship rival Lewis Hamilton’s rear wing with his bare hands in Brazil. The Dutchman said he wasn’t checking the overly wide DRS opening in parc ferme, but testing the wing for excessive flexibility. “I was just looking at how much their rear wing was flexing,” the Red Bull driver confirmed. “I think he won’t miss the 50,000,” said the Austrian. Even Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko had to agree: “It’s tough, but it won’t make him poor.”. I wouldn’t have wanted to have been in the stewards’ shoes.”. The stewards don’t always have the full picture of the world championship in view.”.
