Carlos Sainz seems to be asking for fair treatment after the Singapore Grand Prix. Although the Ferrari driver won, Red Bull seemed to be back with their shenanigans. While Ferrari was far ahead, Red Bull ended their qualifications by the third round itself. This was the first time that Red Bull was seen flunking out so easily. However, during the qualifications, Max Verstappen was seen impeding drivers on the track.
This angered many drivers as they spoke out about the unjust politics and games FIA plays. Max Verstappen got away with impeding other drivers and was only reprimanded and paid a fine. However, many drivers did not understand why he was not given a penalty. Carlos Sainz talked about it with Autosport,
“It’s just a shame that the guy that is dominating and winning pretty much every race is the only one that gets away with it, while all the others we’ve had penalties this year. And when I say everyone, everyone has pretty much had penalties. So it’s a bit strange, and yeah, hopefully they learn from it.”

Max Verstappen asks for a rebrand after confessing his dislike for podcasts
Although Max Verstappen was in some trouble last weekend, he was back winning at Japan. With almost 26 seconds ahead of Lando Norris in McLaren, he was back to soaring in his rocket ship. his dominance this year has brought him into the breakout room more than 10 times. So soon enough, the breakout room was called Max Verstappen’s podcast, with new guests every race weekend. But it seems Max was not a big fan of it.
The Dutchman confessed at the Japan breakroom that he dislikes podcasts. Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri were accompanying him in the breakroom after a double podium. However, when Norris mentioned his podcast, the two-time champion said he was not a fan of it. Soon enough he also mentioned it during their press conference. He was asked if he really does dislike them and the answer was an easy yes.

However, he did ask for a rebrand for the podcast. Meanwhile, Oscar Piastri was grateful to make an appearance on it. After losing his podium in Britain after a tough fight with Lewis Hamilton, he was finally where he belonged. Just after confirming his contract with McLaren, he proved exactly why they made the right decision. Meanwhile, Verstappen’s podcast seems to be on a break until it is rebranded to the Dutchman’s liking.
