In the round-up: Haas team principal Guenther Steiner blamed a communication error for why Kevin Magnussen was held up by team mate Romain Grosjean at one stage in Sunday’s race.
What they say
“What the [censored by FOM] is he doing, guys, come on,” complained Magnussen on the radio when he lost time behind Grosjean. Steiner explained why:
It wasn’t intentional. I think we were a little bit late in giving Romain the information. he didn’t really see what was happening and we told Kevin ‘just go’. It’s always in between. He didn’t do it intentionally. There was some, I wouldn’t say miscommunication, but bad communication how it was done. It should have been clearer communication from our side.
