Why Verstappen accused Ferrari of cheating

  • Published on Nov 5, 2019
  • Ferrari’s loss of pace in the United States Grand Prix increased the speculation around what might be behind its straightline speed advantage in F1 2019. Its rivals suspect that a technical directive clarification from the FIA about the cars’ fuel flow meters could have thwarted a trick Ferrari had come up with, and Max Verstappen went as far as saying Ferrari’s drop in pace at Austin was “what happens when you stop cheating”. With no firm evidence to analyse, and Ferrari claiming those accusations are “completely wrong”, Edd Straw and Scott Mitchell assess how the situation has moved on now weeks of debate behind the scenes is finally moving into some finger pointing in public

    After the last race and the non existent ferrari pace, I feel Max's stand has been vindicated...

    if anything i would look deeper into Hamilton and Mercedes Team Hamilton has pushed drivers out of the way and the other drivers have said it and even said that Hamilton and Mercedes were the ones that are cheating and have the FIA blessing to do so

    Another 2 races have taken place since then and Ferrari were again in No Man's land. I think Verstappen was right, but he can wave goodbye to a future career with Ferrari.

    Of course Ferrari and Mercedes are cheating cause they can bribe f1 stewards and they have millions of money to stay on top while the lower teams are struggling to keep up. Which isn’t fair. That why the f1 sport is boring to watch.

    Ferrari should have a bumper car for Vettel. But would that be cheating? 🤔

    That’s why for the last 10 years Ferrari has been winning and even in the last race Ferrari was fastest in straight line and again they won then we think Ferrari has 5 tires and RB only 3 and Mercedes only 2 1/2

    These kinds of comment are expected when they come from an entitled, trust fund baby who has been groomed from the womb to be an F1 driver. Always told he's the most wonderful, bestest, glorious boy the world could ever have. Too bad folks are snickering behind his back and calling him "Vercrashen"

    As long as you lose , everything is fine. Once you start winning , and things start going well , people start finding all sorts of excuses. It's the same thing in ordinary life , when you start obtaining good results , a lot of people become suspicious. I think Max should keep his big mouth shut. Nobody said anything about his Honda engine going from being a hunk of shit to a front row contender.

My God he's on a top 3 team yet has crashed out more times than he;s been on the podium! Ferrari have been doing this for 90 years! Max just needs to STFU for a while and just listen.

    The skinny guy on the left is perhaps the worlds worst sports commentator. He is continually making either false or idiotic claims. There were a few in this clip with the most obvious being "...the teams don't want to dob each other in." Obviously this is wrong a la - Hass ratted on Renault over brake bias system.

      @DREAMTEAM MMA Facts? You don't even know that word. According to your speech, that was merely statistic, a man with the feets in the snow and the head in the fire, it have a medium body temperature. That's how you're silly. Leave F1, occasional fan.

      @DREAMTEAM MMA "0.7 on the straight faster then RB and still no pole position"
      Is the classic phrase that only an occasional F1 fan, or a fanboy would have said. The stronger point of RB are fast corners, due his high drag, and Interlagos is almost full of fast corners. Ferrari on contrari have a lower drag than RB and MB, his advantage is in torque in the exit of corners not in aerodynamic.
      It means that if a track is stop&go made, like Monza, wth slow speed/short corners, Ferrari would be unbeatable (as it was). On contrary with an high aerodynamic track like Mexico, USA, Interlagos with long and fast corners, the tractions Ferrari have give them no advantage, cause the average speed during the lap is almost constant.
      So what hapened there, true that Ferrari gained 0.7 thents in the fast sector, but they lost 8-9 thents in the fast corners sectors...in fact Verstappen was 2-3 thents faster than Ferrari.
      Upon the crash episode they was just idiots, but it have to happen sooner or later, is better that is happened now than next year.

  • Riccardo Bossi
    Riccardo Bossi 22 days ago

    let's sum this one up, we have a dominant team, that gave very little space to the other for 6 years
    RB: fine with it.
    ferrari now has a good car that puts up a fight and makes the gps more iteresting and fun,
    RB: this is illegal, we should fuck them up and ruin relationships between teams because we ain't go down alone
    i think this is just bullshit, ferrari simply has a better engine, sometimes they fuck up because they are testing strategies and set ups for the next year since this one is already over, at least this is what it looks like to me

    Everyone: F1 has become predictable and boring and drivers have become media puppets without character, we miss the old spectacle and drama!
    Max: Says something mildly controversial
    Everyone: OMG how DARE you. You have stolen my dreams and my races with your empty words. And yet you're one of the lucky ones. Teams are suffering. Drivers are dying. Entire rule circumventions are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass regulation, and all you can talk about is Ferrari and fairy tales of questionable engineering practices. How dare you!

    • Legio XXI Rapax
      Legio XXI Rapax 21 day ago

      There's some differences between making a controversial statement against another driver, and say without evidence that a team is cheating, making a fake statements like the one he did will make Ferrari losing millions in the stock exchange market, this child not even know with what is playing around.
      And guess what? Ferrari returned faster in Brazil giving 0,7 sec on the straight to RB even if FIA clarified with official directives (as asked by RB) how the flow meter should work legally.
      What it mean? That Ferrari is fully legal, that RB don't knowing not even what data they are analyzing (cause the flow meter theory on Ferrari was did by Mercedes, as Marko said, but also that theory is wrong) and that Verstappen the crybaby don't know what he's talking about.
      Conclusion: Verstappen did a shitty figure, as Red Bull did.

    Which just proves the point... there are too many rules in F1. What's the point of engineers developing the cars if they are called cheaters? Soon F1 will be like the old IROC Series. Equal cars built to the same specs.

    Funny how Ferrari seemed to have a power advantage last season, and the FIA checked their batteries - which were "fine" - yet the advantage seemed to disappear immediately afterwards. And now the same thing again this season.....

    Maybe because last season they used ice packs on their intercoolers and this season they have been playing about with their fuel mixtures? That's why he accused them, because they ARE cheating, and yet they still lost the season. Max just has the bollocks to say it in public.

  • Arman Maaba
    Arman Maaba 25 days ago

    Yeah max is right that Ferrari maybe added fuel flow that exceeded on the FIA limit as per regulations and this isn't easy to be noticed. Somehow this can be tracked by any other team specifically when 2 cars are racing on straight line on a multiple race. And you will know that once you've reached the maximum limit the car will not add any kph/mph because no force is exerted to counter the flow of air.

  • maverick buckley
    maverick buckley 25 days ago

    If an engine with 3 races in it drops 11mph off it's top speed factoring in Downforce then the Ferrari engine is utter crap. Which it isn't.
    Occums razor. F1 has always been about who can 'bend' the rules the most . One team has been caught 'bending' them more than anyone else.

    They cheated. Every denial of Ferrari so far is apologising around the issue. They put a mechanism in place to circumvent a control system put in place there by the FIA to create a level playing field. The fact that they were not punished severely was, because apparently there was NO RULE that clearly stated: "you cannot interfere with our control systems in a way that DO NOT TOUCH our control systems". Furthermore Todt = Ferrari = Leclerc. Verstappen would never have gone to Ferrari, he's a pure racer. Ferrari is far too political. Ask Vettel.

    An expensive mistake. Even if Verstappen never plans to go to Ferrari in the future, he would want whatever team he is negotiating salary with to believe he might do so. Take away his route to Ferrari with a stupid petulant comment, and he’s reduced his salary negotiating power forever. That one outburst could cost him tens of millions of dollars. Stupid kid.

  • Craig Gallagher
    Craig Gallagher 26 days ago

    I hate cheaters but with how restrictive and locked down the regs and rules are, it's almost a necessary evil to keep the racing interesting especially for teams that have no other way of ever catching up to teams that essentially have a monopoly on competitive performance. Open the sport back up again to crazy out there innovation and let the chips fall where they may. Set a fuel usage limit but let the teams decide how they use it and if they run out before the end of the race or have a negative effect, thats the risk of going a different way than the norm. But it may also gain them an advantage which the other teams then need to innovate a response. Need much more risk vs reward in this sport rather than these stunted, locked in idiotic rules that punish for years on end the teams that simply dont get it correct right off the bat.
