Red Bull hit out at Mercedes over FIA rule change that chips away at Max Verstappen edge


    Red Bull’s Helmut Marko has been left furious at Mercedes at the news a new Technical Directive is to be introduced by the FIA to slow down pit stops after safety concerns.

    Red Bull are known for being pit stop pacesetters during the races with their slick and coordinated set-up and are often the ones to beat across a race weekend.

    But it’s an advantage that could potentially take a very small hit with the new rules, as the FIA look to prevent teams from going faster than human reaction time.

    From the Hungarian Grand Prix, FIA have introduced a mandatory 0.15 second response time between the wheel nuts being tightened and the mechanic signaling completion, dropping the car down to allow the car to rejoin the race.

    Red Bull and Max Verstappen lead both the driver and the team standings, with a 12-point gap between the Dutchman and Lewis Hamilton heading into round eight in Austria.
