The pilot of Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen, who celebrated the victory at the Grand Prix of Mexico, admitted that the Renault engine failures in the race made him worried.
In addition to Verstappen, the checkered flag from Renault saw only Pierre went Out and was out of the race, Daniel ricciardo, Brendon Hartley, Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz.
“I’ve seen engine failures and retirements, which seriously worried, – quotes Verstappen AUTOSPORT.com. We looked after the motor, but everything worked fine.
On television I saw a gathering of Daniel and the fire on the car of Toro Rosso. At that moment I thought, “Lord, make it so that I was spared”. We transferred the engine in a sparing mode.
I probably helped that I had a new motor, but Daniel was also a new unit.
Luck often turned away from me in the beginning of the year, so I’m happy that this time, luck escaped me”.
His teammate, ricciardo said: “I think this is the fundamental problem of the engine.
The highlands? We used to come to Mexico, so such conditions should not be a surprise. We are not sure what the root of the problem.
The weekend turned out for Renault grim. Disappointing again to go the distance. I think that Max already had experienced similar problems at the beginning of the year.”
