  • Verstappen blames horsepower surge for crash

In this picture, Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team's British driver Lewis Hamilton (L) chats with Infiniti Red Bull Racing's Belgian-Dutch driver Max Verstappen ahead of the start of the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix at the Yas Marina circuit, November 27, 2016.

When watching the incident back behind the podium Hamilton referred to Verstappen as "a dickhead", and speaking to the media after the race he said he felt the incident was "unnecessary". "Max dived in on the inside, a good move, bit aggressive pushing Hamilton out but I think most drivers would have done that", he added.

"It's interesting to hear from Christian [Horner] because they have got a vehicle that should be getting good results and through these kind of..."

"And I don't know if they're inexperienced or not totally mature decisions, but [Red Bull] are not getting the results they should". The Honda engine clinched their first bit of good PR in a long while with their best-ever finish in the turbo hybrid era as Pierre Gasly masterfully steered his Toro Rosso to fourth in just his seventh grand prix. So I don't think it's justified to give us these kind of s*** questions and making up a story out of nothing, if we are just racing and we are full of adrenaline and sometimes we say these things. "I can't really remember what point of the race it was or why we were in that position, but I don't really care to be honest".

Lewis Hamilton's hopes of winning the Bahrain Grand Prix took a major dent after he was hit with a five-place grid penalty.


"He was past, there was no need to push by, for me it was frustrating as it could have been me out of the race through a relatively silly manoeuvre".

Verstappen and Hamilton clashed on the second lap in Bahrain when the Red Bull passed the Mercedes but clipped the W09 in the process, puncturing his rear-left tyre.

The stewards looked at the tangle but swiftly ruled no action was necessary. "I am thinking and wondering", said Hamilton.

SAKHIR-Sebastian Vettel leapt to the defence of his rival Lewis Hamilton on Sunday when the Briton faced questions over his post-race criticism of Max Verstappen's driving in the Bahrain Grand Prix.

"We've all been in that situation, we fight someone, we go sometimes wheel-to-wheel, it's close and you have a lot of adrenalin going", Vettel said. I was just really grateful that my vehicle wasn't broken and I could continue. "He didn't need to keep going, to be at the track". "I don't know what the **** I'm doing out here", he went on.
