Max Verstappen has explained why he went to inspect Hamilton’s rear wing after qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix.


  • Verstappen received a €50,000 fine for touching/examining his and Hamilton’s rear wings post-qualifying.
  • The Red Bull driver explained he did so because he suspects the Mercedes wing flexes more than what is allowed.

What he said:

  • “Of course, there are things to still look into because, as I said, at a certain speed it seems like the wing is flexing and of course we had, at the beginning of the season, we had to all change the rear wings a bit because of the back-off but it seems like something is still backing off over there so that’s why I went and had a look.”
