Max Verstappen was leading the Baku GP when one of his tires exploded, causing him to retire, and he is not happy about Pirelli’s conclusions after the crash.
Despite losing the chance of increasing the gap to Lewis Hamilton, Max still leads the championship by four points, and he wants to create a bigger gap in France.
“At Paul Ricard, we are not always great, but this year we have a strong car,” said Verstappen, adding that since Mercedes is quite strong there could be an exciting race.
Speaking about the crash in Baku, Verstappen called Pirelli’s statement “vague” since the explanation was not very clear, and the tire producer said that it was not a problem with the tires.
Moreover, Max believes that Pirelli is trying to blame Red Bull for what happened, but he is sure that the team did nothing wrong during the race.
“They should look more to themselves,” he says. “We haven’t done anything wrong.”
