Something bigger behind selfish Verstappen move

As tempers eased after an eventful Brazilian GP, all the talk was about Max Verstappen’s refusal to help Sergio Perez finish second in the drivers’ standings. Former driver Ralf Schumacher said it was incomprehensible why the back-to-back world champion didn’t take the perfect opportunity to obey and team order as “payback” for his Red Bull teammate’s support in 2021 and 2022. A year ago, Perez made Verstappen world champion – now he could have helped his teammate in return. “That’s why I don’t understand why Max reacted like that. The Dutchman insists his British rival “didn’t leave space, and that’s what happens”. “I thought that after last year we might have forgotten everything and could finally fight,” said Verstappen. “In the end it doesn’t matter anymore,” said the Austrian.
