Max Verstappen disappointed by the choice of the FIA: “Is your car slower? It’s up to you to identify the problem”

The International Automobile Federation (FIA) announced emergency measures on Thursday to reduce the “porpoising“, an aerodynamic phenomenon that causes enormous vibrations in Formula 1 single-seaters, in the interest of the drivers.

Between the GP of Baku and that of Canada, 9th round of the World Championship, scheduled for Sunday in Montreal, the FIA ​​wished to react to the consequences of this phenomenon linked to “ground effect” of the new generation of single-seaters that appeared this year, for the health and safety of the drivers.

The changes made by the FIA ​​may not change our performance, it’s true. However, I am disappointed that the decision falls during the season. If all the cars were affected by the problem, ok I understand, but… The engineers are trying to push the cars to the limit. Some teams are complaining and I don’t think that should influence the trajectory taken. The teams must solve the problem themselves. If your car is slower, it’s up to you to identify the problem. I don’t know if it will improve our performance or not, I just think that the way to solve this problem is not the one we should see in F1. It goes without saying that we all know that safety is very important in our discipline.“, analyzed Max Verstappen (Red Bull).
