It is being reported that the entire Red Bull team has decided to indefinitely boycott Sky Sports, due to comments made by reporter Ted Kravitz.

Yesterday reports started coming in saying that Max Verstappen is refusing to talk to Sky Sports and its affiliated channels, after long-time reporter Ted Kravitz said Lewis Hamilton has been “robbed” of the 2021 title.

Since December of last year, Kravitz has been very outspoken about the unfairness of the controversial decisions made at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which prevented Hamilton from winning his eighth world title.

The exact comment that has ‘broken the camel’s back’ for Verstappen was made after the 2022 United States Grand Prix, and you can read it in full here.

According to the newest reports, the boycott of Sky Sports has now been extended to the whole Red Bull team, who will not be giving any statements to the broadcaster.

The boycott will continue indefinitely, and will reportedly be re-examined ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix in two weeks’ time.

In the aftermath of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Christian Horner said that people in Formula 1 have “very short memories”, and the circumstances of that race will soon be forgotten, however, a year later the team is boycotting a broadcaster for still talking about it.

It would appear that not all people in Formula 1 have “short memories”.
