Red Bull did not ask Verstappen in Abu Dhabi to hold up Leclerc

Sergio Perez was going for second place in the world championship on Sunday. After the second fastest time in qualifying, he seemed to have excellent papers for that, but in the race things still went wrong for the Red Bull Racing driver. Charles Leclerc stopped a turn down and ended up crossing the line a second and a half earlier. Perez got no help from teammate Max Verstappen.
