Max Verstappen to know his fate after Mercedes present its case

Mercedes will make their case for a review of the decision not to penalize Max Verstappen at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix to officials today .

The Red Bull driver was not punished for forcing Lewis Hamilton off the track as the seven-time champion tried to overtake.

The hearing is to establish whether the criteria for a review of the decision have been met. Mercedes must demonstrate there is “a significant and relevant new element” unavailable at the time of the decision.

The new evidence is believed to include on-board camera footage of the incident from both cars.

This was not released until Tuesday, nearly 48 hours after the incident took place. Representatives from Red Bull have also been summoned to the meeting.

The two drivers go head to head once again in the Qatar grand prix with only 14 points separating them in the battle for the title.
