It was the seventh DNF of the season for Verstappen and he has criticised Vettel.
“I think mainly Sebastian started squeezing me,” Verstappen told Sky Sports F1. “Maybe he didn’t see Kimi on the left but that’s not an excuse.
“If you are fighting for the world championship you shouldn’t take those risks squeezing someone that much. You can see what happens. Lewis is leading the race and the three of us are out.”
“I don’t think it was a racing incident,” added Verstappen. “They took in total three cars out and I was in the middle doing nothing wrong. We’ll see what happens.
“I’m happy not only I retired but all three of us so we all have a bit of pain.”… more to follow
