Verstappen’s RB16B was randomly chosen among the points-paying cars and met the FIA’s technical regulations following tests on various parts of the car including the power unit, brakes and the chassis.
“After the race of the Monaco GP car number 33 was randomly chosen among the top ten cars for more extensive physical inspections,” the FIA said in a press release.
“Subject to these physical inspections were the pedal assembly including brake master cylinders, throttle pedal position sensing, associated dampers, surroundings within the survival cell, sensors and their loom rooting and connections to the SECU and other units.
“All inspected components were found to be in compliance with the 2021 Formula 1 Technical Regulations.”
Verstappen leads the Drivers’ Championship for the first time in his F1 career going into this weekend’s Azerbaijan GP with a four-point advantage over Lewis Hamilton.
