Vettel: ‘I should have handled it better’

We have a first statement from Vettel about the crash with Schumacher. “I still have to watch it. Of course it’s a shame that we touched each other and didn’t both score points,” he said.

“We should have organized it better. I have to see it again,” Vettel said. He hasn’t spoken to Schumacher yet. “I kept checking where he was,” he reveals.

Ralf Schumacher: “A little racing accident”

The expert says on ‘Sky’ about the German accident: “Mick has to try it there. But you can see: he is a little hesitant. He might not have had to because he could have had the curve. Brake a bit later, as he says.”

“But Sebastian also has to give up space. He can’t vanish into thin air. Sebastian has to look at himself in the mirror, that’s how it is. Unfavorable situation. You could say: of course it was a bit of a racing accident. . But Sebastian still has to give up space.”

Unfortunately only in this series of photos. He also failed to score points in his 26th Formula 1 race today. In doing so, he equalized Ricardo Rosset. Hopefully we can remove him from this stat soon!

Alonso apologizes to Gasly

The Spaniard has just apologized to Gasly for the accident. By the way, it looks like Alonso is no longer threatened with further sanctions. He can keep P9 with it. And that would be the end of all investigations, if we haven’t forgotten anything.

11:43 p.m.

Schumacher: ‘It’s a shame for both of us’

The other German also forgives after the accident and explains to ‘Sky’: “Of course it’s always easy to talk about it afterwards. If you see it that way, I could have stayed behind or tried harder to go ahead.”

“In the end, it’s a shame, a shame for both of us. I will definitely talk to him about it, ”he announces.

Leclerc: The medium was the problem

“It was physically a very difficult race,” reports Monegasse and explains: “We had some problems with the medium tyres, especially in the first stint, and we were overtaken.”

On the hard tire you were “very competitive”. In the end, however, Red Bull simply had better pace today. “But it was fun,” Leclerc said.

The Ferrari driver continues to lead the World Championship. He is only 19 points ahead of Verstappen.

When you think you’ve seen it all in Formula 1… I’ll leave that without comment.

11:26 p.m.

Warning for Alonso

Let’s continue: Alonso receives a warning for having exceeded the limits of the track. However, we don’t know if that means providing an advantage or if he still incurs a penalty for it.

We’ll keep an eye on this, everything is a bit confusing at the moment…

11:23 p.m.

Penalties against Magnussen & Ricciardo

Magnussen receives a five-second penalty for the walk number. But that doesn’t matter to him either, because he parked his Haas a lap before the end. At least the decisions come quickly today.

Ricciardo is also penalized for taking an off-track advantage. Also five seconds. He fell back to 13th place, but wouldn’t have scored in eleventh anyway.

11:18 p.m.

no punishment

The decision is already there: “NO FURTHER ACTION” is the name of the scene between Schumacher and Vettel. Unbelievable there wasn’t even a hearing. But since the two didn’t score anyway, it doesn’t really matter…

11:12 p.m.

There are still problems

Not just for the Schumacher-Vettel stage. Magnussen and Stroll also touched down again and Alonso seemingly took the lead as he ran off the track. Of course, we keep an eye on everything.

11:09 p.m.

Verstappen wins!

It was still hectic at the end! But nothing happens in front, Verstappen wins ahead of Leclerc, Sainz and Perez. Here in the ticker we will work on everything in peace again. Before the overview:

Fall of Schumacher and Vettel!

That can’t be true… Both were racing for the points – and then they crashed! In addition, the race marshals review it. But a penalty would not matter now, with points it will be nothing for both of them.

10:58 p.m.

Leclerc puts pressure

Verstappen raced past the safety car, now Leclerc is putting the pressure back on. It is in the DRS window, the thing is undecided here! Bottas makes a mistake at the back and has to let the two Mercedes drivers pass. Russell passes Hamilton on fresher tyres.

No penalty for Magnussen or Stroll for that matter.

10:54 p.m.


There has been a feud between Magnussen and Stroll, the race marshals are looking into it. Still no overtaking maneuvers ahead. But now DRS is out. This could be the opportunity for Perez, for example!

10:51 p.m.

Verstappen wins the restart

Keep on going! Verstappen remains in front after the end of the safety car. But of course the field is now very tight everywhere. Let’s see what’s going on here!

10:43 p.m.

penalty for Alonso

It was predictable: Alonso receives a five-second penalty. Meanwhile, Perez used the safety car for a free stop. It has new mids now and is right behind the Ferraris with old hard tyres.

Other drivers also play and stop again. This still shakes things up a bit. Will be a hot final phase!
