Mick Schumacher has responded to Max Verstappen’s radio during the closing stages of the United States Grand Prix.

The situation: Verstappen was defending championship rival Lewis Hamilton through the closing stages of the USGP. Schumacher was about to be lapped by both, but the Dutchman was unhappy with the German’s “slow” reaction.

What Schumacher said:

  • “Fact is I can’t disappear. I was racing too.”
  • “I was trying to be the least complicated or annoying for Max. And him getting DRS equalled that out a little bit. That’s racing.”
