Helmut Marko stated that he was not happy about what Lewis Hamilton did during FP3 after he ruined Max Verstappen’s lap.
Just like Helmut Marko, Verstappen was angry with Lewis for what he did, and he showed that with a team radio to his engineer.
While Max was on a flying lap on soft tires to prepare for qualifying, Lewis did not leave enough space for the Dutchman who lost time and did not manage to go first fastest.
“Max had a good lap,” Marko told Servus TV. “We lost two tenths in the first corner. If we improve on that we will be back on the same level. Mercedes caught up with us and we didn’t have a flawless performance.
“Hamilton deliberately killed Max’s fastest lap. It’s annoying and it’s not the first time. It’s only the third practice, so it’s not so tragic.”
