But that's not all: Red Bull is also facing allegations of fraud ahead of the race in Singapore.
There is a rumor that the racing team exceeded the budget limit last season and even spent seven million US dollars more than the other teams.

Red Bull vehemently denies the allegations.
In the background, the FIA has been investigating the process for a long time, and a result is expected next Wednesday.
The regulations would theoretically even make it possible to deprive Verstappen of the world title.
In the meantime, the second world title can no longer be taken away from him.
There are still six races to go, and Verstappen is 116 points ahead of his rival Leclerc in the drivers' standings.
