Verstappen is under investigation for lost bodywork


The young speedy, Max Verstappen is under investigation for lost bodywork in qualifying after the engine cover flew off his car just following he comes-out from the pits with new power unit.

The closing minutes of the Qualifying Q1, Verstappen out on the track following crew rushed to finish new power unit change between sessions. The engine cover flew off early in the lap, leaving debris on the track.

Following the session, FIA could think about that decision a serious subject, especially given the present dispute over wreckage in the light of both the Spa tyre failures and the Justin Wilson death crash.

“We were really in a hurry; normally we wouldn’t get it done, but I was quite surprised, the team did a really good job,” Verstappen said.

“I think the bodywork was only like 50 per cent [secured], from all the bolts, because they [the mechanics] thought it would hold on, as it’s quite strong.

“But I think it just got a bit too much vibration out of the pit. I think our race pace is quite good,” he said.

“It’s probably competitive against Red Bull, faster than McLaren and close to the Sauber and the Lotus. It’s important to get the tow here, and once you’re in the tow you can keep up.

“We need to have a good start and just be on track when others make mistakes.”
