With Max Verstappen disobeying a direct order to allow Sergio Perez to pass him for sixth place at the end of the Brazilian Grand Prix, where do Red Bull go from here?
George Russell took a fairy-tale debut F1 win in Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix, dominating the afternoon to finish ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Carlos Sainz.
But there was trouble at Red Bull, where, after an uncharacteristically low-key weekend, Max Verstappen ignored team orders to let Sergio Perez through for sixth place, as the Mexican seeks to secure second spot in the Drivers’ Championship.
