Verstappen sidelined by ‘minor fuel leak’

Date published: February 27 2018

Max Verstappen’s first morning in the RB14 was curtailed by a “minor fuel leak” according to Red Bull.

The Dutchman managed just one lap on Tuesday morning before spending a lenghty spell in the team’s garage.

He ventured out just before the scheduled lunch break, which was cancelled to give all the teams more running, only to pit again after two laps.

Red Bull have revealed that a “fuel leak” was behind the lack of running.

The team expect he will be back out this afternoon.
