Why didn’t F1 allow Red Bull to fill its traditional swimming pool with water at the Monaco GP?

a pretty Red Bull tradition at the Monaco Grand Prix is jump into the pool of the Energy Station in case of finishing on the top of the podium. Sadly this 2023 will not be possible, at least there will be no water in it.

Oh yeah, just in case win the Monaco GPCheco Pérez or Max Verstappen will have to swim between plastic balls and life preservers. The pool at the Red Bull Energy Station at the Monaco Grand Prix did not fill with water and here we will know the reason.

This year it is not allowed that there is water. So whoever wins the Monaco Grand Prix from the Red Bull teamwhich can be Czech, he won’t get a chance to take a dive like last year”.

Naturally the The last Red Bull driver to dive into the pool was Checo Pérezwinner of the Monaco Grand Prix in 2022, along with Juan Fossaroli himself.

And why isn’t the Red Bull pool allowed to have water?

The Principality of Monaco is experiencing a severe drought, which causes constant water cuts to the population in order to procure the vital liquid. According to Monaco Tribune, It is not allowed to wash cars or water the lawn with a hose, in addition to avoiding filling pools and swimming pools with water.

Can you imagine that Formula 1 comes out of nowhere and fills a team’s pool so that they celebrate their victory by swimming in it? It would clearly be a very negative message and could generate a lot of discontent among the population of Monaco, that is why Red Bull was not allowed to fill it with water this 2023.
