Helmut Marko confirms Red Bull will appeal Lewis Hamilton verdicts

Helmut Marko has said Red Bull have lodged an appeal against the stewards’ decisions against Lewis Hamilton in Saudi Arabia.

Hamilton was reprimanded and Mercedes were fined €25,000 after they were found to have impeded Nikita Mazepin in FP3, while no further action was taken against a double waved yellow flag infringement – as the yellow flag button was pressed by mistake.

Hamilton was not given a grid penalty in these decisions, and the Red Bull advisor confirmed the team have queried these verdicts.

“We have appealed against this decision,” Marko told Servus TV, quoted by RacingNews365.

“In Qatar, Max gets five penalty points. Here, suddenly a yellow is no longer a yellow. There is another interpretation.

“But it can’t go on like this, that you interpret it in such an arbitrary way.”
