It’s a Max Verstappen the one who showed up in the Abu Dhabi paddock is definitely fighting, more than ever determined to take home his first world title in his career and is playing any card in his possession to put pressure on his rivals, Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes. But also towards the Race Direction and the Federation, repeatedly expressing his disapproval for having been sanctioned with 5 seconds for having gained a position by cutting the track and with 10 seconds for the collision caused with the rival on the 38th lap of the Grand Prix. of Jeddah last Sunday. “If we look at certain decisions, I don’t feel them at all in my favor“, Verstappen blurted out in a long interview granted to Yas Marina to his compatriots De Telegraaf: “In the last race I was punished, while others were not even called up by the Commissioners in similar situations. Why are there suddenly different rules for me? In retrospect, the Baku accident was very painful. While in Hungary I was thrown out by Hamilton’s teammate, at Silverstone by himself. And there I lost a lot of points ”.
And Verstappen wanted to return to the episode of the British Grand Prix: “In England he received a 10” penalty, but was able to win the race. Now the FIA seems to be alarmed about a possible accident, so much so that a driver can suffer one deduction of points. I find it ridiculous. Now yes and before no, even if it came on me on purpose “. But he assures: “All this hype about equal points doesn’t interest me, I should have already been champion. Let me say that I am not at all happy with the decisions that have been made ”. A thought also for the Dutch fans, eager to celebrate at the checkered flag: “I try not to read too much, but I approach this GP like any other race. Everyone knows that I will do my best and that I always go to the limit “, concluded the Red Bull driver.
