Ferrari has launched a protest against Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen at the Monaco GP, accusing the Red Bull race winner and world champion of pit exit violations.

Perez and Verstappen were charged with crossing the yellow line when leaving the pits on lap 23, trying to stay ahead of Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc.

Perez ultimately won the race, while Verstappen finished third.

Race Control did not launch an investigation during the Monte Carlo epic, but later Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto accused the two drivers of a “clear breach of the rules”.

Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto believes Max Verstappen broke the rules by crossing the pit lane exit line at the Monaco GP.

The FIA ​​summons later confirmed Perez and Verstappen were under investigation, with a Red Bull representative called to the stewards at 6.15pm UK time.

“We protested because we thought it was right to ask for clarification,” Binotto said. “I think both Red Bulls were on the yellow line on the exit and in the past that has always been penalized with a five-second penalty.

Binotto noted both the International Sporting Code and the race director’s notes as he told Sky Sports F1 earlier: “We are disappointed as we believe there has been a clear breach of the regulations on the two Red Bulls who use the yellow line when leaving the pits.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says he is disappointed that Ferrari appealed Max Verstappen's pit exit at the Monaco Grand Prix, but is confident his driver will not face any penalties.

“I think it was not close. It was on the line and if you look at the intonation of the sporting code it says crossing, but we had a clarification in Turkey 2020 to avoid any discussion and if you look at the notes from the race director he indicates keep to the right.

“So to be in line is to break the clerk’s notes and I think every team has a duty and task to follow the clerk’s notes.

“So for us it is something that is unclear and we are still seeking clarification from the FIA ​​and we will be happy to have our comments as soon as possible.

But Horner told Sky Sports News: “It’s disappointing that there have been protests.

“We think the International Sporting Code is clear. He didn’t cross the line, he was still in contact with the line.

“We have seen other precedents set, with other drivers in the past. If this was more than a reprimand, I would be extremely disappointed. I really hope common sense will prevail.”

It appears both crew chiefs are correct, with the race directors’ notes stating that “drivers should stay to the right of the solid yellow line at the pit exit when leaving the pits and stay to the right of that line until it ends after Turn 1”.

But the International Sporting Code simply says that a tire must not “cross” the yellow line.

Appendix L states: “Any tire on a car exiting the pit lane must not cross any painted line on the track when exiting the pits for the purpose of separating cars leaving the pit lane from those on the track. .”
