Red Bull are right back in the Constructor’s Championship after the US Grand Prix. Even with Verstappen winning earlier, Perez’s late ranks seemed to give the advantage to Mercedes. However, at COTA, things changed when both the Red Bull drivers finished on the podium. Now it is being reported that Red Bull asked the FIA to inspect Mercedes’ rear suspension set-up between the Turkish Grand Prix and United States Grands Prix.
To those who are not aware, Mercedes only leads by 23 points with only 5 races remaining. Which means two more races and the Brackley-based team could even start trailing in the Constructor’s standings. Now with Red Bull urging FIA to look into Mercedes’ rear suspension, it remains to be seen, what action is finally taken.
Red Bull urges FIA upon Mercedes’ rear suspension
Safe to say that the two spoken about outfits have exchanged blows almost as much as Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, and they’ve also been quick to try and raise points about each other’s car at times this year in a bid to get the edge over the other.
Moreover, according to Auto Motor und Sport, Red Bull asked the FIA to take a look at Mercedes’ rear suspension which they felt might not be completely fair – though the report does state that there were no conclusive findings of any wrongdoing.
In this instance, though, Red Bull were not successful with the report in fact stating that Mercedes are not alone in the way they set their suspension up at the rear Hence, it seems like this one is a bit of a non-starter.
