Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko has been officially warned by the FIA for his comments about Sergio Perez.
Last Friday Marko issued an apology via a Red Bull-owned TV channel in Austria for comments he made about Perez where he attributed the driver’s inconsistent form this season to his ethnicity.
Marko, who was a former racing driver and close friend of the late Red Bull co-owner Dietrich Mateschitz, made his original comments at the Italian Grand Prix.
An FIA spokesperson has told Sky Sports News: “We can confirm that Helmut Marko has received a written warning and been reminded of his responsibilities as a public figure in motor sport in line with the FIA Code of Ethics.”
