The race director explained the controversial Bahrain finish line between Hamilton and Verstappen and clarified the tortuous shape in the standard. Neither Mercedes nor Red Bull is so clear.
smallI am no longer confused, because max verstappen will not mess up. He knew he chose the worst place to surpass Lewis Hamilton And he may be punished for two corners in the future. He was silent, and quickly opened the game page in his pocket. With Michael Masi at the helm, he insisted that the game standards remain unchanged.
He clarified: “It was clearly mentioned in the driver’s meeting that passing through Turn 4 will not be controlled like in qualifying.” “So we didn’t make any changes during the game.”.
“So everything is clear. If overtaking occurs while the car is off track and you gain an advantage, then you will gain a lasting advantage, then it will be broadcast Telling the team to resign from that position immediately, it is very clear, “Persist in replacing the legendary Charlie Wissing.
“Actually, Red Bull immediately received my instructions and resigned. As they said in the “Sports Rules”. Therefore, this is not to exceed the limits of the track, but to gain a lasting advantage by overtaking another car on the track. “
For many people, Verstappen has clearly won Hamilton’s place when he left the track, which is a bit of a gray interpretation of the norms. Christian Horner himself thinks so, because Hamilton has deviated from the track many times, even though he did not overtake. But they did estimate that he did £0.2 per lap each time, and the race ended up winning 0.7 laps.:
“This is frustrating. We can see that Mercedes uses the part of the track. We asked if race control is possible, because the part that uses the track has a two-tenth advantage, and Mercedes has Do it circle after circle. Even the game director requires them to comply with these restrictions, otherwise they will show them the white text on a black background., He promised to prove that Hamilton repeatedly exceeded the limit, and yes, he did not surpass anyone.
“This is always controversial, so we need consistent judgment. You can’t say you can use it in a race, but you can’t overtake: it should be black or white and should not be shown in shades of gray.
Verstappen was also unable to return to the position in a simpler position to reinstate it again, but He promised: “I don’t think it’s fair, that’s why I did it there.” “Later I had to do this, and then it was difficult for Lewis to follow. I entered Turn 13, My oversteer was over, and since then, I no longer need to be tired. “, Red Bull said.
Even Toto Wolff was dissatisfied, he won the game: “In the middle of the game, it is no longer worth leaving, but at the beginning it is. I am as confused as everyone else. We need to be clear and consistent in the messages we receive. The rules must be sacred, not Shakespeare’s novels,” said the head of Mercedes.
