Helmut Marko makes Michael Masi plea amid calls for Max Verstappen to be stripped of title

“As is often the case with Safety Car periods, one driver benefits more than the other.

“In the American IMSA, three laps can be added so the races are suddenly longer. In Formula 1, with all the tight fuel calculations, this is not an option.

“The primary purpose of the investigation is to clarify that Masi was simply overwhelmed in that situation, and that the team bosses cannot continue to interfere with race management over the radio.

“Everything should be clearer. I think they will try to relieve the race management a little more.”
