Right now, if there’s someone as high as Michael Masi on the controversy scale, it’s arguably Ted Kravitz. The veteran pit reporter has brought himself into controversy after commenting on the controversial 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. As Red Bull has decided to boycott Kravitz and Sky Sports F1, the reporter decided to shrug everything off.

The British reporter partied with Sergio Perez fans after the conclusion of the Mexican Grand Prix. During the post-race Notebook show, as reported by the Daily Star, Kravitz was flocked by Perez fans in the stadium section of the circuit, near the podium.

Moreover, the F1 pit-lane reporter showered praise on Red Bull Racing for their dominant performance in the 2022 F1 season. The Austrian team raked up a total of 16 wins in 20 races so far and has already picked up the constructors’ championship for the first time in nine years.

Even though Kravitz was seen among Red Bull star driver Sergio Perez’s fans, it doesn’t paint him in a good light that Max Verstappen and his team initially decided to snub interviews with Sky Sports.

Max Verstappen opened up on Ted Kravitz’s row

For the first time since the Ted Kravitz row, current F1 champion Max Verstappen opened up on it. In a report published by the Daily Express, Verstappen revealed why he decided to ditch one of the top networks of Formula 1 coverage.

The Red Bull star conveyed, “It has been a constant kind of digging and being disrespectful, especially from one particular person. At one point, it is enough, and I don’t accept it. You cannot live in the past and you have to move on.

Apart from Verstappen, Red Bull team principal Christian Horner and the Red Bull crew have also decided to join the boycott. To not be able to cover the driver’s champion as well as the current constructors’ champion might be a big blow for Sky Sports F1.
