This discussion had been sealed and agreed with a closed-door agreement between the pilots and their team, but the lady Sophie Kumpenmother of the Dutch champion, launched some statements that compromised the man from Guadalajara and exposed a break in this team.
The Monaco Grand Prix of this 2022 was a bittersweet sensation for “Checo”, since he triumphed in an emblematic circuit, due to the celebration that the man from Guadalajara had that compromised him due to the level of party he led. It was from this that Sophie Kumpen used to point out that Pérez, in an apparent drunken state, was dancing with a woman and would have cheated on his wife Carola Martinez.
What did Verstappen’s mother say?
In an image from the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix, Kumpen commented: “And in the afternoon he was cheating on his wife,” he posted on Instagram, although that post has now been removed from the platform, several users managed to capture the unfortunate comment about the private life of Pérez Mendoza.
The reality is that criticism of Verstappen has not stopped due to the performance he had and that limited the action of “Checo” in Interlagos, complicating the numbers for the Mexican to position himself in second place, beating his pursuer Charles Leclerc, who now holds 290 points, tying that of Guadalajara ahead of the end of the 2022 Formula 1 season.
And in the afternoon he was cheating on his wife
After the broadcast images of Pérez celebrating in Monaco, the pilot apologized and classified it as “a bad party”, in which he did not seek to involve his family or his sponsors in a show that would compromise the reputation of his team.
Was Brazil a revenge on Monaco?
The Dutch press has published theories in which Verstappen charged Pérez with a maneuver that affected him in the Monaco Grand Prix classification. An accident by the Mexican, which Max’s countrymen say was intentional, caused Max to not be able to reach pole position and started from fourth place in a race that Pérez would end up winning, so his reaction at Interlagos, the track in Brazil, it would have been a way to settle an old score from the first quarter of the year. In any case, it does not sound very friendly or collaborative, which would not leave Verstappen looking good either. So far only theories.
