Ferrari driver could face sanction for outburst at FIA race director Charlie Whiting despite post-race apology
Formula 1’s governing body, the FIA, are investigating Sebastian Vettel’s expletive-laden radio rant during the Mexican GP.
The Ferrari driver, enraged at the driving of Red Bull rival Max Verstappen, repeatedly swore over team radio during the closing stages of the race before aiming another foul-mouthed outburst at FIA race director Charlie Whiting.
“We have people assembling evidence about the incident,” Jean Todt, the FIA president, told The Daily Mail. “Then we have to see if any action has to be taken or not.”
According to The Daily Telegraph, the FIA are ‘under huge pressure’ to penalise Vettel.
