“We have explained the incident in detail and I have set up a commission to investigate it further under the chairmanship of Peter Wright. Let’s wait for the conclusions before we judge.”
Hermann Tilke: “I think it is fine. It works. The first few laps were great for overtaking, but afterwards the field was sorted.”
“I need to have more surgery – and there are possibilities – but it’s a tight season, there are many rallies and they are long events.”
“I’ve never spoken to someone at Red Bull about the drive for Toro Rosso. I did not know beforehand that they had chosen Max [Verstappen] but I prefer it this way, I do not like to speak about it with them.”
