Formula 1: Fans have been poking fun at Red Bull's excuse for exceeding the cost cap limit by blaming their high-end catering, though it remains unclear whether this is true.

Formula 1: The flaming Red Bull, after its exceptional start on the track, is facing turmoil behind it. David Croft, the Sky Sports Commentator revealed that not everything is well between the Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez.

Croft revealed how both the players faced friction after the race in the cold room. Perez was not satisfied with the order to complete the target lap times slower than Verstappen. Rather, the Mexican driver felt betrayed after learning that Red Bull had dictated the move.

“Perez is in the last year of his deal and if there are no signs of another deal coming, what’s in it for Sergio to help his team-mate in the way Red Bull would like? I think there are a few banana skins down the road.” Croft mentioned.

At the moment, Red Bull has denied any such tensions among the players. The team has not released any statement regarding the said instructions for Perez to follow Verstappen in the final lap. However, Croft confirmed that Max’s father, Jos Verstappen, showed reluctance to join the Perez’s celebration after Saudi GP win.

According to The Telegraph’s Tom Cary, the reaction from Verstappen Senior gave a hint about their feelings for his son’s peer. The row further escalated when Max’s mother accused Sergio of cheating. Following Pérez’s victory, Sophie Kumpen posted a statement on Instagram but quickly removed it. But the scars are still visible.

“As for Max’s dad, all is clearly not well in Jos Verstappen’s mind when his son finishes and leads the world championship, yet he can barely break a smile!” Croft highlighted this in his Sky Sports F1 podcast.

Fans are currently expecting to see a reconciliation among both the Red Bull before they hit the Australian tracks. It will be really stimulating to see how Red Bull tries to manage this crisis.
