A major scandal erupted in the Alps after the Hungarian Grand Prix last weekend.

In light of what happened, we wouldn’t necessarily be surprised if it turns out that Piastre’s account has been hacked, although the opposite is evidenced by the fact that the Australian driver didn’t speak in Albin’s first statement declaring the competitor, only Szafnauer did – and some new confirmation, the usual sample sentence in In this case, teams always used to quote.

But we will not be surprised in this matter, nor will we be surprised on the contrary …
