I was in a team for 6 months and i did a good job. I switched teams recently due to various reasons. The performance review was done by old manager and his comments aren't true. I believe it is a reaction to leaving the team. I want to set the record straight with my new manager. Do i wait to see if my new manager asks questions about the review?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions asking for advice on a specific choice, such as what job to take or what skills to learn, are difficult to answer objectively and are rarely useful for anyone else. Instead of asking which decision to make, try asking how to make the decision, or for more specific details about one element of the decision.

how do I set the record right?
Most companies have as part of the performance review process a place where you can comment on your review. Use that.
Make comments that indicate why you believe your performance exceeded your ratings. And point out anything specific that you feel is inaccurate. But skip the "I believe it is a reaction to leaving the team." unless you talk it over with your past manager beforehand and that manager agrees. Try not to come across as whining or overly defensive. Don't criticize your former team or manager. Acknowledge any actual deficiencies in your performance - nobody is perfect.
Be aware though that your new manager will likely judge you based on your performance on your new team and will probably not care much if at all how your past manager judged you. At least that what I always did.
Your comments are unlikely to change anyone's attitude toward you, but at least you will have them on record.
