Max Verstappen takes blame for Sebastian Vettel collision

15 April 2018

The 33-year-old, like Vettel a four-time champion, has taken an unprecedented five wins in Shanghai but recognised that his chances of a sixth had taken a knock.

"It was a insane session - the vehicle was unbelievable and it just got better", added Vettel.

It looked like the win would be decided between Mercedes and Ferrari once again, until the safety vehicle handed a strong advantage to Red Bull, whose drivers started cutting through the front-runners at a frantic pace in the closing stages of the race. The German is favorite to win his third race of the season and former F1 drivers' world champion Damon Hill believes the tide is turning. "Really bad and unnecessary".

Verstappen benefitted from the safety vehicle period triggered by a clash between the Toro Rosso drivers to switch to soft tyres and attack his medium-shod rivals in the latter part of the race.

"I could see him struggling on the tyres", Verstappen explained.

"I was defending, I obviously saw him very close in the first three corners, in the exit as well". So that was of course my fault.

"This is definitely not what I want and it's a life lesson".

For his part, Verstappen accepted responsibility for the incident, but despite seeing his race unravel for the second weekend in a row because of contact with a rival, dismissed claims he needs to calm down his approach.

"I am confident I can stay where I am, but moving forwards is going to be tough", Hamilton, 33, said. I think we could have done it, but this is racing, these things happen. It happened very quickly, but it was a decisive, winning move. "I think right from the first lap in the first of part of qualifying, in Q1, I was really happy and, in the end, we didn't have to do much on the vehicle".

Hamilton left China nine points behind Vettel, who finished eighth. "To be honest I was expecting him to come earlier". I had no intention to resist because it was clear with Daniel [Ricciardo] as well that there was no point doing so - they were just too quick on the fresh tires.

"He did a mistake and locked up which happens". We had a tailwind down the straight the whole race. "I guess he misjudged and sort of compromised both our results".

But you ultimately you have to have these things in mind and make sure you don't crash.
