Haas racer Romain Grosjean commented on the recording of the radio conversations with the team, which came after the United States Grand Prix.
In a 46-second audio a Frenchman complains about the state of the left front tyre and said that to continue so impractical.
“What are we doing, guys?! You can’t risk your life. The tire is completely worn out!” exclaimed Romaine.
In response he heard from the head of Haas Gunther Steiner: “Shut up!”
Grosjean still got to the finish line, but before a racing weekend in Mexico was forced to answer questions about the controversy with the team.
“I don’t want to comment on it – quoted by ESPN F1 Grosjean. – We decided this issue, everything is fine. I can only say that the dialogue looks so hard, because one recording is reproduced fragments of radio traffic for 30 laps. I just physically couldn’t speak for the circle.
I was a little shocked at how edited the entry. It wasn’t like that.
We talked with bill and found out. I feared for my safety, because front left tyre was worn out and could burst at any moment. The team wouldn’t know that because the sensor failure had not received data on pressure, temperature, etc”.
Steiner added: “at what point In the race I just wanted to convey to him that will be enough to argue and if he needs it, he pulls into a pit stop.
We talked before the weekend and even laugh together. So everything is fine”.
