Azerbaijan GP winner Max Verstappen has denied Red Bull used team orders to allow him past teammate Sergio Perez.

The Mexican driver had said the team told him to let Verstappen by, but the Dutchman now denies those allegations.

“They didn’t say anything to me or tell him to let me pass. I just overtook him myself,” he stated in an interview with Viaplay.
