Gasly invites FIA to check genitals amidst underwear clampdown

AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly has invited the FIA to check his genitals in reaction to the furore surrounding the governing body's clampdown on non-fireproof underwear.

On the same weekend a reminder was given about drivers wearing jewellery, race director Niels Wittich has raised the concerns surrounding the safety of underwear that is not fire retardant.

But addressing how the FIA would police the matter, an unhappy Gasly said: "I won't comment on that.

"If they want to check my arse, feel free, I've got nothing to hide. My cock, everything. If that makes them happy, feel free."

Ricciardo unsure if such underwear exists

McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo was also asked about the situation after qualifying seventh for his home grand prix.

Expressing his surprise at the sudden situation, Ricciardo explained: "This was the first time I'd heard about the fireproof underwear.

"Obviously we wear the leggings if you want to call it that, but we don't have actual underwear-underwear that's fireproof, so that was just more of a surprise. I'd never heard of it.

"If it helps keep us a bit safer in those situations then, of course, I'll invest in some. But I don't think they make them.

"Or at least our people that we get our race kit from I don't think, so we're going to have to get some custom ones.

"And I guess it's going to be tailor-made of course!"
