Santino Ferrucci has been banned from the F2 races in Hungary and Belgium after deliberately crashing into his team-mate Arjun Maini after the Sprint Race at Silverstone.
Ferrucci then replied to Maini on a Sky Sports F1 tweet mentioning Maini’s radio transmission saying “says the one crying on the radio. I just did my drugs test so I’m all clear ;)”.
The stewards at Silverstone heard testimony from the Trident team that Ferrucci driving into Maini was premeditated.
Trident responded on Twitter stating: “Trident intends to show their solidarity and support to @ArjunMaini_ and his family, for the unsportsmanlike and above all uncivilized behavior that he was forced to endure not only during this last weekend by Santino Ferrucci and father, who accompanied him.
“The contractual implications of what has happened will be dealt with by our lawyers. Never in these 12 years of sporting activity has anything even close to this ever occurred. We apologize for the show that we have regretfully offered.”
