The pilot of Red bull Max Verstappen told, which moment was the most awkward years of his career in Formula 1.
“In Austin in 2016, the race went well, I took fourth place. My engineer said on the radio, so I pushed hard. At that time it meant I have a pit-stop. After that I drove a lap and went to pit stop. But then I realized that I was not invited. I thought, what have I done, and announced on the radio that I’ll be in the pit lane. The mechanics grabbed the sets of rubber and have a pit-stop for 8 or 9 seconds. Despite my mistake, it was fast enough. After three laps I was out of the race due to problems.
After the race, Helmut Marko was furious. I admitted the mistake, I had nothing to say. The moment was quite awkward”, — quotes the words Verstappen official site.
