At Red Bull, they continue to push for the Bahrain Grand Prix, and Halmut Marko believes that accepting sanctions will not give Max Verstappen a victory
MediumAfter Bahrain was beaten by Lewis Hamilton, the axe Verstappen was still in the car and blamed his team for this. He argued that instead of agreeing to return to the British position after “crossing the boundary” at the 4th corner, he chose to continue using the checkered flag: “I could have spent 5 seconds easily,” the Dutch objected. This is usually the price of gaining position with all four wheels off the pitch.
His boss Helmut Marko believes that the solution will not be so easy. “Completing the game 5 seconds early does not ensure that we win. We are sure that the fine will be so large that Hamilton will win. If he leads by 5.8 seconds, they will give him a 10 point penalty.” The Austrian thinks what will happen, Always make Hamilton win.
Marco also did not understand that Lewis was allowed to exceed the limit time and time again in the game, and when they asked if it was legal, they did not answer them in the “race direction.” He said on the “Formel1” portal: “In general, this is a bit suspicious. There are no sanctions, but (Hamilton) saves time.”
He believes that these situations may end. “If we put a wall there, it will be resolved. Anyone who touches this wall will damage their car. I don’t understand why we have so many asphalt holes on the track, why we didn’t create a clear Border,” said Red Bull’s executive manager.
From now on, the number of corners monitored by sensors will increase without the threat of competition, which seems to be the most effective deterrent for drivers.
