The FIA revealed afterward that Verstappen’s car had been randomly selected for checks, after the Dutchman finished in the top ten at the Australian Grand Prix.

As part of the checks, the FIA looked at Verstappen’s dampers, sensor systems and suspension, all of which passed.

“After the race of the Australian GP, car number 01 was randomly chosen among the top ten cars for more extensive physical inspections,” the FIA report stated.

“Subject to these physical inspections were the front and rear sprung suspension components, the front and rear inboard suspension components, all front and rear dampers as well as all attached sensors logging suspension travel (including their signal against suspension travel).

“All inspected components were found to be in conformance with the 2023 Formula One Technical Regulations.”
