“Lewis could have given him a bit more to work with, because he [Verstappen] was ahead going into the left hander [Turn 1].

“It’s unfortunate, I think it’s the only incident that Max has had this year. So unfortunately, Max was deemed at fault with the five-second penalty, which then just hurts our race even more. It was very frustrating.

“For us, it was just disappointing to get the damage and drop so much lap time, and that put Max very much on the backfoot.

“We were surprised by the penalty because he basically got it for a racing incident.”
