Verstappen summoned for suspected red flag violation


Max Verstappen is one of the favorites of the Dutch Grand Prix race and the only public favorite in Zandvoort this weekend. But the home event could prove to be more complicated than expected.

Indeed, the Dutchman is summoned this morning at 10:45 am by the race stewards. The official summons document mentions a possible violation of the red flag rule. It will thus have to be explained by a “alleged infringement of Article 1, Chapter IV of Annex L, [l’Article] b of Appendix H of the FIA ​​International Sporting Code and Article 50.2 of the Formula 1 Sporting Regulations, for an alleged overtaking on car 18 [Lance Stroll] while the red flags were displayed at 3:10 pm between turns 10 and 11 “.

The offense, which therefore occurred during FP2, therefore seems to relate to the moment when Lewis Hamilton had to immobilize his Mercedes for an engine warning, which resulted in the first of the two red flags of this session. Based on the onboard footage of Verstappen, who was then in a fast lap, it is indeed possible to see him overtake Stroll once the red flags are in effect, before slowing down, although this all plays out in a relatively short timing which could work in favor of # 33.

Asked about this streak by Sky Sports, Christian Horner, director of Red Bull, said on Friday evening: “This is the first time I’ve seen this. Max, as soon as he heard there was a red flag, he immediately slowed down. I can only think the other car was on a one anyway. slow turn. So I mean, I was looking at the data, and it was completely off [de l’accélérateur] as soon as he got the red flag message. “

As this type of offense is considered to be among the most serious, because it is linked to safety issues, a penalty on the starting grid of at least five positions appears very likely for the one who appears in second place in the driver classification, if he is of course found guilty without extenuating circumstances.
