It was the discussion after the first race of the season because this was the corner where Max Verstappen overtook Lewis Hamilton but he had to give the position back despite Lewis Hamilton went wide in this same corner at least 29 times before he got banned.
Race Director Michael Masi was asked about these track limits at turn 4 after the race: “It was clear to everyone that we would not monitor it during the race. But then we saw that some teams were abusing it, doing it every lap, that was not the intention.”
Masi on Verstappen’s action with Hamilton. “That was discussed in the drivers briefing on Friday. Whoever overtakes someone in that way is then asked to give back position.”
Max haalde Lewis buiten de baan in. Dat is niet toegestaan. Dus richt je boosheid niet op Hamilton/Mercedes. Zij maakten perfect gebruik van wat voor het weekend al bekend was. Red Bull wilde Max hetzelfde laten doen tijdens de race toen ze doorhadden dat HAM het deed.
