‘We are not treated same’ – Red Bull advisor accuses F1 chiefs of not treating Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen even

RED BULL advisor Helmut Marko has claimed his team are treated differently to Mercedes by FIA stewards following Lewis Hamilton’s win at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. In a chaotic race in Saudi Arabia, Verstappen was twice told by stewards to give the lead back to the British icon after running Hamilton deep twice at Turn One. The incident led Hamilton to brand Verstappen as ‘f****** crazy’ on Mercedes’ team radio. Verstappen was even given a five-second penalty during the GP for leaving the track earlier in the race. The next thing was at the second start, Hamilton was more than ten [car] lengths behind. But with this manoeuvre he [Hamilton] was preparing his tyre better for the start. Verstappen was left furious following the race, as he stormed off the podium having seen Hamilton draw level with him in the championship. Hamilton suggested that Verstappen drives over the limit after he narrowly avoided disaster in Jeddah.
