Lewis Hamilton: Daniel Ricciardo makes Max Verstappen accusation over Bahrain incident

0 7

The pair collided on the second lap of last weekend’s race, and it riled Hamilton, who labelled the Dutchman a “d***head”.

Hamilton finished the race in third while Verstappen was forced to retire following tyre damage after his clash with his Mercedes rival.

Verstappen and the four-time world champion later buried the hatchet by shaking hands and will lock horns again at the Chinese Grand Prix this weekend.

And Red Bull driver Ricciardo has put the blame on Verstappen, insisting it reminded him of his incident with Nico Rosberg.

“I’ll be honest. It didn’t deserve a penalty so that was fine,” Ricciardo said.

“But it reminded me a little bit of me and Rosberg in Budapest where he kept coming and I was on the exit kerb and had nowhere else to go.

“I think Max had the move already, I just don’t think he needed to run all the way to the kerb.

“I think regardless Max would have stayed ahead, he was just a little too greedy.

“Lewis was so tight [to the outside of the track] as well, he wasn’t going to make Turn 2 with any form of speed.

“Even if Max had hung around the outside, I just think Max would have had him regardless.

“He squeezed him a little too much in my opinion.”
