After Max Verstappen won the Styrian Grand Prix by a record margin, he surely knew how to show it off with celebratory burnouts. Although the stewards failed to act upon the current time, later FIA issued a warning to Verstappen and Red Bull upon such actions and clearly told them that such actions would not be tolerated. Now, two-time World Champion, Fernando Alonso has stated his disagreement with FIA and Michael Masi over the same. 

Michael Masi told Verstappen that such burn-outs are not allowed and although the Dutchman himself said he sympathized with the town-planning issue, Alonso believes there is something good about it and that the FIA should not be such a pain.

“I like when you can be yourself, and this burnout I think it was nice to watch. Even the donuts sometimes in Abu Dhabi, I think the fans they like that, and you see a lot of videos from those moments, from social media, etc. So the fans, they like that”,” said the two-time world champion in conversation with Autosport

According to Alonso, the FIA should be stricter in enforcing track limits at Turn 1. “I was the only one making a move into Turn 1 at the start [last weekend], and the two cars that I overtook, they missed Turn 1 and they exited in front of me. There is no warning on that, so there are things that for sure we can improve from the fans’ point of view.”
