Verstappen insists he gave Hamilton enough room in Bahrain clash

Verstappen insists he gave Hamilton enough room in Bahrain clash”

He did well to finish on the podium but may have sacrificed a shot at the win when the team ordered him to stay out a lap longer than he wanted to ahead of his first stop to back Vettel into Bottas.

For now, though, it is Vettel leading the race.

That comment led to an opening question for Hamilton from a Dutch journalist in the post-race press conference about whether use of the word was "correct", but Vettel immediately intervened: "Can I answer that?"

"And I've got to save tyres so that when we're at the end and he catches me I can still fight".

"They (Red Bull) have a auto which should be getting good results, but through inexperience, or not mature decisions, they are not", Hamilton told reporters. I didn't have that information, so there was lots of driving around in no man's land for a while.

"The radio wasn't working properly, and in the heat of the moment it's hard to know what information you need to give". They couldn't hear me, I could hear them.

"And clearly afterward once you are doing take to to give opinions onto a corner, then you'r e carrying off your mind driving a ideal line".

"There needs to be a certain respect between drivers", Mercedes' four times world champion told reporters. As the Finn pulled away, he ran over Francesco Cigarini, who was out of his field of vision, leaving him with a broken tibia and fibula in his left leg. Cigarini was rushed to hospital, where he underwent a successful operation, while Raikkonen retired from the race. Different drivers like different feedback. Max did not need to squeeze Lewis as much as he did.

'Sometimes I feel it's all a bit blown up and artificial if we have these questions, trying to make a story out of nothing.

"We definitely have got some work to do", Hamilton said before incurring the gearbox change. And - dare we say it - does it look like we have an exciting year of F1 ahead of us? It's just working out a rapport that works best. "It's even more important that it's precise information, because we're at a point where it means a position and points for the championship".

Coming in very close to Gasly was Kevin Magnussen of Haas Ferrari, securing seventh, while Renault's Nico Hulkenberg took eighth followed by Esteban Ocon of Force India finishing ninth. "It really highlights the importance of communication and these smaller things that can make a difference".
