Red Bull never ordered to delay Charles Leclerc
The 25-year-old, who won the race at Yas Marina, noted that Red Bull never ordered him to delay to Monegasque. However, he added that he might not have complied with the order in a good way, considering it unfair.
“No, there wasn’t (an order from Red Bull to delay Leclerc), but it is also a decision Quite complicated to take”, the controversial pilot pointed out in the first instance.
“You don’t want to end (so the season) either… Possibly you can delay (Leclerc), but Is that running fair? I believe that it would not be the nicer way of end up the championship and the season”, sentenced Verstappen.
Where was Checo Pérez yesterday?
Is decisionas well as what happened both in the sprint and in the main race of the Brazilian GP, was key code what for Czech lost points valuable in their fight for the Formula 1 runner-up, which Charles Leclerc of Ferrari kept.
