Checó Perez goes for second place without Max Verstappen's help

Troubled waters at Red Bull after the driver from the Netherlands did not let him pass on the last lap in Brazil to help him take second place. The Mexican driver made this curious statement after the end of the race: "If he has two world championships, it's thanks to me". Red Bull then wanted to ease tensions with a statement: "Unfortunately, Max was only informed in the final corner of the request to give up his place without all the necessary information being passed on. This put Max, who has always been an open and fair team player, in a compromising situation with little time to react, which was not our intention. After the race, Max spoke openly and honestly, which allowed both drivers to resolve any outstanding issues or concerns. The team accepts Max's reasoning, the conversation was a personal matter that will remain private between the team and no further comment will be made."

Mick Schumacher already knows his replacement driver

The German will not be in Formula 1 next year, unless he signs for Williams next year because Haas has decided not to renew him. This driver has only scored 12 points this year. Mick announced the news on his social media with a statement: "This is going to be my last race with Haas F1 Team. I don't want to hide the fact that I am very disappointed by the decision not to renew my contract. However, I would like to thank both Haas and Ferrari for giving me this opportunity. These years together have helped me to mature both technically and personally. And especially when things become difficult, I have realized how much I love this sport." Finally Niko Hülkenberg will be the driver who will ride in the Haas
