Racer Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen has not risen to the podium of the Grand Prix of the United States.
The Dutchman started on the 16th due to a penalty for changing elements of the power plant, on the last lap ahead of Kimi Raikkonen in the battle for third place. However, already before the podium ceremony, the stewards ruled that he made the maneuver, having all four wheels outside the track, and gave him a five-second penalty.
Victory in the category “Rider of the day” in such a situation will hardly be consolation for Verstappen and the whole team Red Bull Racing.
“Throughout the weekend the riders traveled outside of the track – the BBC quoted the head of the team Christian Horner. – This is a terrible decision. The stewards just spoiled the holiday for the fans, it was a Grand Prix”.
