Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen was handed a further 10s time penalty to his overall race time following his incident with Lewis Hamilton during Sunday’s Saudi Arabian Grand Prix after Hamilton hit into the back of Verstappen.
Sky Sport F1 lead commentator David Croft Tweeted:
Verstappen has also been handed two penalty points on his Super Licence. Speaking following the race Lewis Hamilton said:
I’ve been racing a long time but that was incredibly tough – I tried to be as sensible and as tough as I could be out there but also sensible with all my race experience over the years, just keeping the car on track and staying clean. It was difficult but we persevered as a Team. We’ve had all sorts of things thrown at us in the second half of this season so I’m just really proud of everyone. I’m really grateful for the crowd we’ve had this weekend – it’s nice to be here.
We’ve done an amazing job with what we have this weekend, Valtteri did a great job today to get big points for the Team – this is for all the guys and girls back at the factory. It’s been an amazing event! I felt very welcome here, the people have been lovely and the track is phenomenal to drive, very difficult physically and mentally, but you wouldn’t want it any other way. So, on to the next one!
