Max Verstappen: My overtaking Raikkonen at the US Grand Prix was incorrect

Макс Ферстаппен: Мой обгон Райкконена на Гран При США был некорректным

Almost two months after the United States Grand Prix the Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen has admitted that he was wrong, ahead of Kimi Raikkonen outside of the track.

In the last lap the Dutchman started on the 16th, ahead of the world champion-2007, but the podium could not, since he had received a five second penalty.

An unexpected consequence of the struggle for security…

“Immediately after the sentence I asked the question: “Why? After all, it was a great maneuver”, – quotes the edition Verstappen Motorionline. But from the point of view of the rules of my overtaking was indeed incorrect. Just strange that in the course of the weekend, many traveled outside of the track, but avoided fines.

However, you have to look for the positive. Of course, it would be nice to reach the podium, but fourth place after starting from the rear – also a good result. In fact, the punishment was not as severe as many thought. The race was exciting, the fight continued until the last lap”.
