Formula 1: Max Verstappen’s dad accuses team of favouring Sergio Perez: Max Verstappen’s dad, Jos Verstappen has surprisingly accused Red Bull of ‘favouring’ Sergio Perez after the Mexican won his first-ever Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday. Current championship leader Max Verstappen finished P3, and this has irked his dad. Follow Formula 1 Live Updates on InsideSport.IN.

Following the race, a disappointed Jos Verstappen said “Red Bull achieved a good result. But at the same time exerted little influence to help Max to the front. That he finished third, he owes to Ferrari’s mistake at that second stop of Charles Leclerc.”

“The championship leader, Max, was not helped in that sense by the chosen strategy. It turned completely to Checo’s [Perez] favour. That was disappointing to me. And I would have liked it to be different for the championship leader. Perez actually won the race because of the earlier pit stop. The team can perhaps explain that as a gamble, but they had already seen, with for example Gasly, that the intermediates were the best option at the time,” he further added.

The Mexican driver won his first-ever Monaco GP and his third race overall in his Formula 1 career. The race was struck by rain and the Red Bull driver took advantage of error’s done by Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz.

Back in the Spanish GP, Perez was frustrated with his team Red Bull for changing the strategy and letting Verstappen win in Barcelona. The Mexican was even told that he would get his place back in Spain but it didn’t happen as Max went on to win in Barcelona.
