“Of course this is stupid for both of us. I’m sorry,” said Vettel to the TV station Sky after the accident, who cost the two German pilots possible World Cup points. “I will definitely talk to him about it,” announced Schumacher. In the attempt by the Haas driver to squeeze past his compatriot of his compatriot, the collision had occurred on Sunday.
“When I see the pictures, I could have passed him more,” admitted Schumacher. In his 26th Grand Prix, the first points of his young Formula 1 career were tangible for him. “I thought I was in the front of the curve. When I saw him, it was too late for both of us,” Vettel described the situation from his point of view.
The Hesse had to start from the pit lane because of a gasoline problem and had worked ninth until the accident. He then gave up and was considered 17th. His compatriot drove to the finish as the 15th.
Ralf Schumacher: “It was his curve”
TV expert Ralf Schumacher saw a partial debt with both drivers. “Mick has to try it, but hesitates easily. He shouldn’t have done that, it was his curve,” said Haas pilot’s uncle. But Vettel would also have had to be better careful. “He also has to look in the mirror, Mick cannot dissolve into air,” criticized Ralf Schumacher.
His nephew tried to take the positive from the guest appearance in Florida. “We have a good car and have to manage not to always get into difficult situations,” said the son of record world champion Michael Schumacher.
