After a few hundred meters, things went completely wrong for Verstappen. After a great start, his power completely disappeared in his car. In the end, Verstappen was picked up by Kimi Räikkönen and his race was over.
“It seems that they were the same problems as last week in Monza,” the Red Bull driver said in conversation with Ziggo Sport. “The start was good, but when I went full throttle, I had that problem again. It’s okay if someone then drives in the back of your car. That’s what you get when you end up in situations like that. I would have dropped out anyway. ”

Verstappen spoke calmly, but was cooking inside, his closing words showed. „This is not normal for it to happen two games in a row. At the moment I’m done with it. I just don’t feel like it ”, said the angry number three in the standings for the world championship.
