Max Verstappen

The majority of the 2022 Formula One season has been as smooth as a piece of cake for Red Bull driver Max Verstappen. Heading into Singapore Grand Prix, there were talks of him potentially sealing the championship at Marina Bay Street Circuit. However, the race did not turn out to be what Verstappen would have hoped for. He struggled immensely and finished the Sunday race in the seventh position. And as per the reports, after the frustrating race in Singapore, Max Verstappen skipped the Red Bull team meeting.

Max Verstappen Skips Red Bull Team Meeting!

After the crew made a mistake during the Singapore Grand Prix, Max Verstappen stormed off the track and skipped the Red Bull debrief. Verstappen was absent from the meeting on Saturday night, reported the Dutch daily de Telegraaf. The Dutchman has not been able to secure a top finish due to Red Bull\’s mistake of under-fueling him hours earlier. He probably should have started on the pole after that lap, but he had to settle for P8.


During the conversation, the Dutch driver stated that it was not his intention to make any sort of statement by leaving. Rather it was more of an instinctive decision. It was what he felt at that moment. Thus, there is no point in discussing the move. His poor qualifying outcome eventually ushered in the problems which plagued him on Sunday. 

This left him outside the points. But he fought back to P7 after making late passes on Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton. Max Verstappen, though, attributed Red Bull\’s miscalculation to the qualifying problem during the race. Verstappen repeatedly yelled at his technicians over the team radio after they instructed the Red Bull star to pit during qualifying. The Dutchman justified his choice of words following the meeting, saying the crew was better able to concentrate due to the harsh tone.

Verstappen\’s Team-Mate Sergio Perez Wins Singapore!

On Sunday, Red Bull\’s second driver, Sergio Perez, registered a win in the rain-affected Singapore Grand Prix. At the same time, his colleague Max Verstappen could not fulfill the expectations as he finished in the seventh position. As a result, Verstappen will have to wait till the Japanese Grand Prix to seal this year\’s world championship potentially.


Sergio Perez took his team ahead of Ferrari\’s Charles Leclerc with 7.5sec. On the other hand, Carlos Sainz managed to secure the third position in the race on Sunday. Max Verstappen had a very realistic chance to win his second world championship in Singapore. However, finishing on the seventh number has pushed him a little further. Now, he will have to wait at least one more week to claim the glory. This also means that Verstappen\’s lead over Leclerc has now been reduced to 104 points going into the Japanese Grand Prix.
