FIA did not take any measure over Perez incident – Trulli

Published

on

Team-Lotus driver Jarno Trulli has criticised the FIA for not penalizing Sauber challenger Sergio Perez through the Hungarian GP last weekend.

Trulli was dissatisfied with the ruling body following claiming the Mexican rookie jumped the chicane in the early stages of the race in order to regain his position. Jarno Trulli retired from the race following 17 laps, believes the FIA should have given a penalty to Perez.

“This time around it’s my turn to complain and tell the FIA off, despite my race ending almost immediately,” wrote Trulli in his column for Repubblica. “At the start I already had to deal with three incidents ahead of me that pushed me to the back, then Perez arrived with his absurd behaviour and everything was over. He was strangely slow, more than my Lotus: I overtook him twice and to regain his position he cut the chicane. The rulebook is crystal clear, he had to move over and give the position back to me; instead he didn’t care, he stayed ahead of me.

“He showed a rare kind of rudeness and a unique ignorance of the rules, but I wonder why the FIA did not take any measure. What is it there for? What was it looking at? I understand why a boy would shrug, but the stewards had to intervene. I could overtake him only in the slow sector but didn’t manage to anymore, he slowed me down and ruined my race before my engine threw a tantrum like at Silverstone and forced me to retire.

“My message is clear: there is only one rulebook and it’s the same for everyone: not just for the guys ahead, but also for the people at the back of the grid.”
