Red Bull fined for Verstappen blunder in second practice
The two-time world champion, Verstappen, received a €500 fine for exceeding the pit lane speed limit by 4.8km/h in FP2. Red Bull was penalized as a result. Verstappen expressed frustration at encountering traffic during his soft tyre run, which caused him to finish fifth-fastest. His teammate, Sergio Perez, outperformed him by securing the third-fastest time. Unfortunately, Perez ended the session in the barriers after spinning at the famous Parabolica corner. Verstappen aims to achieve a record-breaking 10th consecutive victory this weekend, having already matched Sebastian Vettel’s achievement of nine straight wins at the previous race in Zandvoort.
