Max Verstappen Defends his Fastest Lap Attempt Disobeying Team Orders at Spanish GP

Max Vertappen was leading the Spanish Grand Prix when he ignored Gianpiero Lambiase’s radio instructions to take the fastest lap. Verstappen, who was leading the Spanish Grand Prix, ignored Gianpiero Lambiase, his race engineer’s radio message to go for the fastest lap.

Max Verstappen, despite dominating the race three times, could not avoid exceeding track limits, earning him a Black-and-White Flag. The Dutchman was facing a 5-second penalty, but still asked about his race engineer’s fastest lap. “We can’t afford to take any risks.” “Don’t worry,” replied GP.

The two-time world champion disregarded the order, however, and took the fastest lap at the Spanish Grand Prix. Bring it home, within the white line now. GP thanked Max for his purple lap. Max Verstappen, when asked after the race about his performance, said that everything was fine within the team, disregarding the information given.

Christian Horner, Red Bull’s team manager, said: “We’ll certainly talk to him” after Max Verstappen made his risky fastest lap attempt.

Christian Horner was not impressed by the fact that the current champion clinched a Grand Slam and won the Spanish GP with a commanding victory. Horner, who is known for being very cautious, believed that there was still more to be risked after Max received three warnings. He said a sudden safety vehicle could have been “extremely painful.” He also stated that he will talk to Verstappen following his Sunday antics.

Verstappen did not think he had done anything wrong. He said he was able to achieve it and that if he maintained his RB19, he could earn the extra point. The championship leader explained that he did nothing wrong. “I just kept it inside the white lines and went a little faster on the circuit, so I did not do anything wrong,”. ” After the race, I laughed about it with Helmut Marko [Red Bull Motorsport Advisor], so I’m sure they’re happy,”he concluded.

Verstappen has now won five races this season following his win at the Spanish Grand Prix. The Dutchman increased his championship lead 53 points over his teammate Sergio Perez. Red Bull currently holds the top spot in the constructors championship with a lead of 135 points over former rivals Mercedes.
