17-year-old Toro Rosso driver Max Verstappen made a mistake while chasing Romain Grosjean almost two weeks ago in Monte Carlo, ending the race of the Lotus employee, who was challenging for points. Some said that the Dutchman’s recklessness and his dangerous driving lead to the crash, while others suggested that it was a racing accident, and however it is tempting to blame the young driver’s lack of experience, this is not right. Almost every driver and expert agrees though that Verstappen should not say anything like that he said to Grosjean after the race.

 

Crash.net: F1 Canadian Grand Prix: Grosjean upset at lack of apology from Verstappen

 

Romain Grosjean expressed his disappointment over Max Verstappen “forgetting” to apologize after their crash in the last race in Monaco. The Dutchman was trying to get past the Lotus driver, who was on worn tyres, until the young Toro Rosso driver made a mistake and hit the Frenchman from behind.

The incident divided experts and followers of sports scores. Grosjean blamed the young and reckless Verstappen, while the 17-year-old Dutchman stated that the Frenchman brake-tested him. After the incident, Grosjean was out from the race, and however he was challenging for points, what really hurt him was that Verstappen did not offer an apology at all.

“It does [disappoint me] because we went to the stewards after the grand prix and I tapped him on the back, thinking he could say ‘I’m sorry’ but, instead, he said I brake-tested [him], which is completely wrong as I actually braked later than the lap before,” said Grosjean. “It is not the way I’d like things to happen.”

Max Verstappen was criticized by Felipe Massa several times in the aftermath of the Monaco incident, when the young Dutchman hit Romain Grosjean from behind. However, the 17-year-old Toro Rosso driver stated before the Canadian Grand Prix, that he won’t alter his driving style, though being under fire from drivers, fans and followers of live sports results.

Massa expressed after the race in Monte Carlo that the dangerous Verstappen should be penalized after the accident, and he was duly handed a five-place grid penalty by the FIA, and he also got two penalty points to his Super License. He will serve the penalty in Montreal this weekend. Massa also said that the Dutchman braked too late before hitting Grosjean.

Verstappen responded to that statement in the press conference before the Canadian GP. “Everybody can have their opinion, that’s the first thing, but I looked at my data, I didn’t brake any later,” Verstappen revealed. “I had braked later in the race before that but on the lap I crashed, it was exactly the same lap as the lap before and I got my penalty.”

 

Autosport.com: Button warns Verstappen over Grosjean ‘braketest’ crash remarks

 

Jenson Button, world champion of 2009, expressed that he was astonished by Max Verstappen saying Romain Grosjean braketested him when the Toro Rosso driver hit the Frenchman in Monaco nearly a fortnight ago. Button said that Verstappen should think twice before he speaks to the media, according to gambling news.

Button revealed however that he didn’t think that the cause of the accident was Verstappen being inexperienced. The 35-year-old Mclaren driver had problems only with the Dutchman’s remarks to journalists, saying, “He’s obviously inexperienced, it’s easy to go and jump on the bandwagon with that.”

“I think, the thing is, you’ve got to be very careful with what you do say in the press,” he went on. “To point the finger at someone and say that they braketested you, that’s serious. I don’t think that happens in motorsport these days, we’re all grown-ups and we don’t do things like that in Formula 1,” added Button.
