Max Verstappen responds to Lewis Hamilton's 'dickhead' comment

  • Kimi Raikkonen set the fastest time in final practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix

For now, though, it is Vettel leading the race.

Then, the Briton was involved in an early collision with Ferrari's Max Verstappen at the early part of the race.

"There needs to be a certain respect between drivers", the Brit said.

"It is interesting to hear Christian has said that because they have a auto which should be getting good results, but through inexperience, or not mature decisions, they are not", Hamilton said. The Mercedes team struggled in the hot temperatures at the desert circuit, but should be competitive again when they travel to the Far East, where the weather and track will suit the Silver Arrows vehicle.

"And I don't know if they're inexperienced or not totally mature decisions, but [Red Bull] are not getting the results they should".

The Mercedes driver is expected to drop five places for the start of today's race because of the problem.

"I think to myself if Fernando [Alonso] was in that vehicle he would have finished a decent race and got points for Red Bull". Then I'm not going to stay behind him. "It's not fair. I don't know what Lewis did, but we've all been in that situation".

"We were racing, which was all fine".

Hamilton had earlier told television reporters that "emotion is always firing when you get out of the car" and added that he could not remember making the comment until reminded that it was in the pre-podium room. "He didn't need to keep going, to be at the track".

Horner believed blame should be equally shared.

With Red Bull suffering a double retirement after Daniel Ricciardo lasted only two laps, sister team Toro Rosso capitalised, with Pierre Gasly finishing a surprise fourth. Max is an aggressive racer, Lewis is an aggressive racer. Lewis is a hard racer. "People turn on the TV to see how their fight turns out", he was quoted by PaddockTalk. You can argue it both ways.

"We're going to sit down and discuss it and try to work on the points and improve, and I have no doubt we will".
