Verstappen: ‘Hamilton or Vettel would have passed me sooner’ than Bottas
By: Chris Medland | 20 minutes ago
Max Verstappen says Lewis Hamilton or Sebastian Vettel would have passed him sooner than Valtteri Bottas during the fight that ultimately saw him receive a penalty in the Italian Grand Prix.
Battling over third place in the closing stages of the race, Bottas attempted to pass Verstappen down the outside into the first chicane, but the Red Bull driver moved over slightly too far in defense and they touched wheels (pictured). The contact forced Bottas to skip the chicane and Verstappen was handed a five-second time penalty for causing a collision. While the Dutchman says he would have defended in the same way against Hamilton or Vettel, he believes either would have overtaken him earlier.
“He always does that [hesitates],” Verstappen said of Bottas. “I know that. Hamilton or Vettel would have passed me sooner. They’re just quicker and better than Bottas. Yes, they are simply better!
“Bottas never got closer to me, so even without that penalty I could have stayed in P3. I was never never going to let him pass and settle for fourth or fifth — as that’s where we’re supposed to be on current pace.”
Verstappen still disagrees with the penalty he was given, because he feels it is inconsistent with incidents that saw heavier contact between drivers in the same race.
“I was just defending my position. Got caught up in that situation because we were losing on the straights, that’s basically it. We were never expecting to be there anyway.
“I’m not angry — P5 was where we were expecting to be, realistically speaking. We were closer than expected.
“I think we should be able to race hard, not get penalties for just the slightest touch. It’s too extreme. This is just an example. There have been other cases of two cars touching without a penalty. It’s a bit random.”
While Verstappen doesn’t believe he received the penalty as a result of his reputation for aggressive defending against other drivers, he also says Bottas would not have received the same penalty if the roles were reversed.
“We were just lacking on the straight so we ended up in this position. This doesn’t happen to him.
“I don’t think [Bottas would have been penalized]. It depends — on who is stewarding the race.”

Gde da pocnem - dakle, Botas je kriv sto ga je Maks izgurao sa staze zato sto okleva, a ne Maks zato sto ga je izgurao, OK. Hamilton i Fetel su bolji od Botasa - no shit Sherlock, obojica imaju 4 titule sampiona, i obojica su bolji i od tebe jado. Jeste, ti si samo branio svoju poziciju, ali i moja baba (pokojna) bi tako umela da brani poziciju da namotava volanom na svakog ko pokusa preticanje, to nije nikakva vestina. Jeste, peto mesto je bilo za ocekivati, ali ti si u dzepu imao cetvrto konju konjasti i bacio si ga niz rijeku samo zato sto si odlucio da se do kraja trke izdrkavas nad Botasom i tako izgubio dovoljno vremena spram Fetela. I na kraju tipicno - "da je Botas to uradio MENI, njega ne bi kaznili" - ali Botas to nije uradio tebi nego ti njemu, i ne samo njemu, zato te stalno i kaznjavaju mamlaze. Ocigledno nista nisi naucio do sada i trebace neko da nastrada od tvoje ruke pre nego li naucis. A u timu ti titraju jajca i jos i dalje nabijaju ego.

A možda bi dobio i po labrnji od likova a la Pike, Hant itd.
Sada je sve "God bless, grlimo stabla, pederastija je ok" korporacijskom fazonu i ovakvi likovi prolaze.
Retko gadan dečak. Tako mlad, a takav smrad.

Well, to školovanje mu je dao Rići u Bakuu, ali ovaj je teško govedo pa mu ništa nije ušlo u glavu. A isti taj Rići mu je lane u Mađarskoj pokazao srednji prst u drugom krugu kad je ovaj prolazio tom krivinom. Mislim da bi treći konflikt prešao u nešto malo jače, i tim još bolje jer je Rići u odlasku..
Šteta što nema Maldonada, taj bi ga izgazio na stazi ako bi ovaj pokušao nešto diskutabilno.

Well, to školovanje mu je dao Rići u Bakuu...
I zbog toga je RIC dobio ribanje u timu i morao javno da mu se izvinjava. Jbg.
U stara vremena...

"Lekovi" koje spominjete (i ja također) i Šumaher u tom kontekstu daju zaključak da to ništa ne pomaže. Šumaher je godinama bivao sve gori a na koncu je hteo priljubiti Barikela na zid pri brzini od skoro 300 km/č u Mađarskoj. Tu nema leka, a Ferštapen će isto tako biti sve gori i ne daj bože da se ponekad upusti u prvu borbu za titule jer će to biti nešto najkatastrofalnije što se desilo u F1.
Ferštapen je jedan od likova za kojeg bi mogao da navijam posle Alonsovog odlaska ali neću baš zbog te nezrele drskosti. Moje navijačko opredeljenje će preći na Norisa u roku od odmah na početku 2019. godine. Em je brz em se rodio 13.11. baš kao ja (samo što sam ja 7. godina stariji).

Red Bull is bracing itself to take engine grid penalties at the Russian Grand Prix, as it considers a surprise move back to a spec B Renault.
Although Max Verstappen was able to start on the front row and finish runner-up in Singapore with the more powerful spec C, his weekend featured repeated mapping issues.
It meant his engine kept bogging down or dumping him into a false neutral whenever he was not at full throttle.
Red Bull is hopeful that the mapping issues can be sorted out before the spec C runs again, but team principal Christian Horner has revealed his squad is now looking at a surprise move to fresh versions of the older spec B engines for the next race at Sochi.
It had already made no secret that it might need to take further penalties after fitting new engines in Italy, and Russia's long straights do at least allow the chance for overtaking to recover from any grid penalty incurred.
Asked by Autosport if the C-spec problems could be sorted, Horner said: "It's something that hopefully can be tidied up the next time we use this engine.
"The likelihood is, we'll be using the B-spec engine at the next grand prix.
"We'll have to look at it in the run-up to Sochi, but unfortunately it looks like we may incur some penalties."
The decision to add a B-spec engine to the pool for its drivers is most likely motivated by the fact it is at least reliable, with Renault having been clear from the outset that this could not be guaranteed with the C spec yet.
Both Renault's works team and fellow customer McLaren have stuck with spec B so far for that reason.
Red Bull had been positive about the performance upgrade with the spec C, and initially felt its use of ExxonMobil suited the new engine better than the works team's Castrol oil.
The move to a more durable engine could be important with challenging events such as the high altitude Mexican GP - which Red Bull won last year - coming up.
Horner said the problems Verstappen suffered in Singapore were because the Renault engine had not been mapped properly for the high humidity conditions.
"Because of the torque generation, with these ambient conditions, the engine wasn't optimised," he said.
"And that's been an issue throughout the weekend, more so on slow laps.
"The guys did a good job to patch it up as best they could. But you ended up with inconsistent torque delivery and then that causes the gearbox to get out of sync, and a false neutral is to protect the gearbox."

Verstappen’s engine altitude claim is wrong – Abiteboul
2018 Russian Grand Prix
28th September 2018, 12:10
Renault managing director Cyril Abiteboul rejected Max Verstappen’s claim the team replaced its new C-spec engine because it performs less well at high altitude, and told the driver to “focus on his car”.
Verstappen claimed yesterday Red Bull had reverted from the new power unit specification to the older B-spec because the C-spec would not perform as well on the upcoming high-altitudew tracks in Mexico and Brazil. Abiteboul dismissed that claim during today’s FIA press conference.
“I think that any engine performs not as good in a high altitude,” he said. “I guess the power increase we have seen would have been equal in a track like Mexico. So no I don’t agree with those comments and in general I think Max should focus on the car.”
Both Red Bull drivers will start from the back of the grid this weekend having reintroduced the older-specification engine. Abiteboul said the change of units had been planned in advance with the team to address drive-ability concerns which arose at the previous race.
“We had a drive-ability issue in Singapore in FP1 and into the weekend, and to a far less extent in qualifying. But I think that we have a very demanding user in the person of Max. Not very quiet, also.
“But I think the team has done a great job in order to provide Max what was needed in order to have a good weekend in Singapore, very clear.”
The C-spec as we call it is a good step,” Abiteboul added. “I think it’s a step that is a clear step in power that can also be for a certain number of limitations and that was part of the plan to introduce at a later stage a B-spec. It’s a bit unusual in terms of pattern but it’s a plan we agreed specifically on the request of Red Bull.
Abiteboul acknowledged the change of engines was also needed to give Red Bull the best chance of reaching the end of the season without further grid penalties.
“We do have durability concerns and therefore it was clear the engine introduced for Max would not have been able to do all the races so it was decided obviously to go to a different spec. But again that’s going back to the plan I was mentioning before with Red Bull engineering department and not driving department.”

Max Verstappen says Sebastian Vettel’s overtaking moves at Suzuka’s Spoon Curve only worked on Ferrari-powered drivers who let him pass.
“All the Ferrari-powered cars moved out of the way for him. But I’m not moving out of the way, we were fighting for position. He did overtake afterwards but all those guys just let him go by and it was way earlier.
“He wanted to go next to me when I was always braking into the corner. And of course he arrives a lot faster because I was clipping and a lot slower. But you can’t pass, especially us, we have the fastest car through the corners, so it’s not possible.”
