But another driver on the energy drink giant's books has also been delivering fine performances this season F1

Luke SmithWhy the FIA's Racing Point verdict pleases nobody While Racing Point blasted a "bewildering" 15-point penalty and €400k fine, many F1 teams felt it had gotten away lightly with running illegal brake ducts.
