FIA reveal details of parts changes to Verstappen's Red Bull

The FIA has revealed details of the parts replaced on Max Verstappen's Red Bull after his crash in the final stages of qualifying.

After locking a brake into the final corner of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, Verstappen put his Red Bull into the concrete wall to end a lap that was on course to score the Dutchman pole position.

Despite initial fears that a gearbox change would be required, a change that would bring about a five-place grid penalty, Red Bull has opted against a change after conducting thorough checks.

The list of changed components, however, is not a short one with numerous suspension pieces topping the list.

Confirmed by the FIA, the right side of the Red Bull has required a new rear track rod, rear top wishbone, rear lower wishbone and rear upright assembly.

On the left, only a new front upright gaitor was needed.

Given the impact went through both the front and rear of the car, a new steering rack has also been fitted as well as rear brake friction material.
