Red Bull consultant Helmut Marko has been officially warned by the FIA over his comments about Sergio Perez.
Last Friday, Marko issued an apology via a Red Bull-owned television channel in Austria for comments he made about Perez in which he attributed the driver’s inconsistent performances this season to his ethnicity.
Marko, who was a former racing driver and close friend of the late Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz, made his original comments at the Italian Grand Prix.
This was stated by an FIA spokesman Sky Sports News“We can confirm that Helmut Marko has received a written warning and been reminded of his responsibilities as a public figure in motorsport in line with the FIA Code of Ethics.”
