Lauda calls Verstappen penalty 'the worst I've ever seen'

Three-time Formula 1 world champion and Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda has blasted the stewards' decision to penalise Max Verstappen for a late overtake in the United States Grand Prix, calling the call: "The worst I've ever seen." Verstappen was handed a five-second time penalty for leaving the track and gaining an advantage after a last-lap pass on Kimi Raikkonen, dropping him to fourth place. The decision sparked fury from Red Bull and was widely panned by F1 observers, with Lauda adding his condemnation of the decision when speaking post-race.
