Already before the Formula 1 Tuscany Grand Prix, Max Verstappen had problems with the engine, and even though he had (would have) started off pole position Lewis Hamilton, as it turned out, Red Bull mechanics could not remedy the problem. As a result, the Dutchman lost positions one after the other and then fell victim to the collision of Pierre Gasly, Romain Grosjean and Kimi Räikkönen before Bend 2, trapped in a gravel bed with his AlphaTauri pilot.

“The engine was no longer in good idling on the drive circuit, and the anti-drowning system was also on,” Verstappen said after his outage. “It was a good start, I got alongside Lewis and I had a better start with Valtteri, but as I pushed to the floor, I had a similar problem with the engine as I did in Monza. There was no engine power, and then I got into a situation that is typical of the density of the field. ”

“It was easy to get involved in the accident, but I don’t really know what happened. In any case, we should not have gotten into this situation, the new dropout is very frustrating. But that’s it.

With this, Verstappen was already one race win behind second-placed Valtteri Bottas in the composite, while fourth-place finisher Lando Norrist was 45 points ahead. Gasly, on the other hand, also dropped two positions, slipping back to 10th place in the league despite his success last week.

F1: Verstappen 2 was involved in a mass accident due to his engine

“Towards turn 1 a lot of cars went side by side and then I saw some space between Kimi and Romain. I tried to take advantage of this, so the three of us were next to each other, but it didn’t come in, because we got together, ”the Frenchman summed up.

“I don’t think anyone is worth blaming, the characteristics of the track are like that, but I still have to look back at the recordings,” he added, then also mentioned that he sees the Mugello weekend as a missed opportunity.

“I think we missed an opportunity because we were fast throughout the free practice. As it turned out, I went with a damaged front wing and bargeboard on yesterday’s timer. I was confident about today, because I hoped that we could catch up with the pace of the free practice. ”
