Sep.20 - Having kept quiet on the matter throughout the Singapore GP weekend, Dr Helmut Marko has broken his silence once again on the Sergio Perez affair.

The Red Bull team advisor, 80, admits that amid the furore about his comments about "South American" Perez's comparative lack of focus, he was warned by the FIA.

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton and Toto Wolff, however, believe the governing body should have taken harsher action.

"I got it by email," the Austrian said when asked about the official FIA condemnation.

"I suspect that a lot of things were deliberately controlled but I don't want to say any more on this topic."

Marko was speaking from an AlphaTauri event in Tokyo, where he admitted to hoping that the "incredible excitement" about his comments would now die down.

He also told Osterreich newspaper that he is confident Red Bull's mysterious Singapore slump would not be a problem this weekend at Suzuka.

"I assume that our package will work there," said Marko.

"We just didn't manage to get our tyres within the temperature window in practice and qualifying, but our car was working again on Sunday."

    Funny how every article I read about last weekends race talks about what a setback Max's 5th place finish Lets see he lost a combined total of 31 points to the 4 drivers who finished ahead of him out of a lead on those 4 drivers of 923 points combined and still gained 6 points on his teammate who sits 2nd overall in the WDC. I pretty sure RB and Max are going to be just fine. Give me a break.
