- Helmut Marko has revealed that Red Bull has new evidence to back up its claim that Lewis Hamilton’s 10-second time penalty at the British Grand Prix was too lenient.

The Mercedes driver was handed a penalty after he collided with Verstappen into the high-speed Copse corner on the opening lap of the grand prix.

The incident will be reviewed by the stewards at the Hungaroring after Red Bull exercised its right to request it to be looked at again.

Mark told RTL that the new evidence puts the incident in a “slightly different light”.

- Haas’ Nikita Mazepin is confident the team can move into the midfield in 2022, but is wary that every team on the grid cannot make the same improvements despite claiming that they will benefit from the new rule changes.

He told Autocar: “I’ve got a contract for next year and I will be here at Haas, but with regards to results, it is a funny thing. People look forward to change when they are having difficult times, but in F1, everyone in the paddock thinks that things are going to get better for them in 2022. But all 10 teams cannot get better, because if everyone gets better, you stay where you are.

“So I think with where we are right and the fact that we took a different approach to others in 2021, we will gain something for 2022. I hope we become strong midfielders - to say the least. But then F1 is a sport that is very unpredictable.”
