The attack on the rival went well twice. Senna and Schumacher thus secured the World Cup titles in 1990 and 94. But in 1997 the Kerpener overdid it. He purposely drove his Ferrari in Villeneuves Williams. Subsequently, all points of the 1997 season and thus the vice-world championship title were withdrawn from him.
This is meant to be a cautionary example for Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. FIA race director Michael Masi announces that a crash will not lead to success: “We have regulations, we have penalties, we have starting place penalties. The International Sporting Code also provides that the stewards can disqualify a driver or take away championship points. “
The race director also wants to discuss this with the drivers at the drivers’ meeting on Friday evening. The race on Sunday will show whether the raised index finger is fruitful.
In any case, Verstappen’s father Jos guarantees that his son does not drive with the handbrake on. “Max definitely wants to win”, he tells the Daily Mail: “He will try everything to get the win – no matter how.”
