Mick Schumacher was ahead of Mazepin for most of the race. But then came the red flags. The race started from scratch and Mazepin got ahead. In the last lap, Schumacher approached Mazepin and overtook him on the finish line.
However, it did not go smoothly. When Schumacher was behind his teammate, Mazepin moved to the right. Given the speed on the plain, it was a very dangerous situation.
“What the hell was that?” Really, does he want to kill us? ”Schumacher responded on team radio.
In his post-race speech, Schumacher said he would “have to look at what happened again,” adding that “it didn’t look very good in the car.”
“The main thing is that I’m a little upset about losing a position on the main line in favor of a teammate,” Mazepin said. “I ran out of batteries, so I was a bit of a passenger.”
Team boss Guenther Steiner described the incident as a misunderstanding in a press release.
“A certain situation has arisen on the plain. Everything was solved and we cleaned the air, “said Steiner. “There was a misunderstanding, but we’re fine and we’re all moving on.”
Mick Schumacher finished 13th. George Russell was 14th in the race this year. Haas jumped Williams with “more thirteenth places” and is in ninth place in the Constructors’ Cup.
