After the shocking incident between Hamilton Y Verstappen at the Great Britain Grand Prix, the rules will change, no doubt. Now let’s remember that while the Dutchman went straight to hospital, the Englishman celebrated in style a new victory of the season. A moment that will mark the history of motorsport.
Now, as if that weren’t enough, the tension between Mercedes Y red bull grew even more, in fact, even the two drivers had quite strong words towards their title rival. The teams were then informed that the incident that took the Dutchman out of the race was under investigation.
First it was Lewis who opened the radio to defend his position and plead not guilty in the first place, after condemning his greatest rival. But then Brackley’s didn’t take long to step in to support their pilot in this omission of blame. Mainly because they knew they had it somehow.
And among the differences, pressure began on the commissioners who studied the images of the two top representatives of the teams involved who, despite naturally resolving during the grand prix and also after it, ended up generating a precedent that changes the rules of the World Cup .
Red Bull’s argued that “no one should be able to see the stewards” and, although at first they took Masi’s setback, eventually Milton Keynes’s turned out to be right. What until now was considered a common practice, starting at the next grand prix will be punishable.
Spontaneous visits to commissioners will not be tolerated when an investigation is ongoing. In a note sent to all teams, Masi emphasized that access to judges for anyone outside FIA officials will only be allowed with “prior approval” or as a result of a subpoena.
