Former Formula 1 driver Ralph Schumacher commented on the incident between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen at the recent Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
Ralf Schumacher: “Max had to let Lewis pass and delayed this moment in order to be able to counterattack with DRS. This is very smart. Lewis simply did not expect this: it was not obvious that Max was missing him, and it seemed that he deliberately slowed down.
Of course, Verstappen didn’t want Lewis to bump into him. But he, too, was in no hurry to let him pass. I love that Verstappen takes risks, but he has to be careful not to overdo it. It happens that he acts on the edge, and sometimes he needs to be smarter.
Although Max is only 24 years old, he is in control, reaching the maximum at every turn. In this regard, Lewis sometimes needs more help from the team. Max has excellent prospects, but, unfortunately, now his car is inferior to Mercedes.
Thanks to both of them, the intrigue in Formula 1 persists until the final race of the season. I would like them both to win the title, but Verstappen is closer to me in character. He has his own opinion, he is a young athlete and learns very quickly. Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen haven’t had a title for a long time, so they deserve it. “
