Max Verstappen who is going to start the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix from pole position has ahead of the race come out and advised Lewis Hamilton and George Russell to keep other drivers out of their porpoising debate.

Max has dismissed the Mercedes duo for including other people in the fiasco and believes that they should focus on themselves rather than involving other parties in the picture.

The Dutchman while discussing the proposing issue of Mercedes said,They should just focus on themselves. So just speak for themselves instead of involving other people into it.”

Mercedes has suffered from porpoising throughout the 2022 season and its drivers have been very vocal about the physical discomfort that it is causing the various drivers up and down the grid.

While some drivers agree with the Mercedes duo, Verstappen unfortunately is not one of them and is not happy with Hamilton and Russell for continuously dragging the names of other drivers on the grid.

Red Bull is one of the few teams who have looked to have got a handle on the porpoising issue and even their team Principal Christian Horner has suggested that the porpoising debate is merely a ploy on part of Mercedes to get them close to the top two teams.

Max has so far many times said that they at Red Bull are completely happy with the new regulations and feel that any change in the regulations mid-season would be unfair on teams who have got the porpoising issue under check and would hamper the progress that they have made so far.

The Mercedes duo of Hamilton and Russell is leading the charge against porpoising and has forced the FIA to look into the problem and come up with a solution.

Red Bull believes that any new solution will act as a disadvantage for them in their attempt to retain the 2022 Drivers Championship and this is one of the main reasons why Verstappen has blatantly asked the Mercedes duo to keep his and other drivers’ names out of their issue.

The porpoising saga has just started picking up pace and now with FIA looking for solutions, it is going to be interesting to see what they are going to come up with and whether the Red Bull team is going to approve of it or not.
