F1: Verstappen blinded by oil from Gasly’s Honda F1 engine in Abu Dhabi

Max Verstappen says the last laps of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix were like “driving through fog” after being blinded by oil from Pierre Gasly’s Honda F1 engine.
Verstappen was running behind his 2019 Red Bull teammate’s Toro Rosso when it began to smoke in the closing stages of Sunday’s race, ultimately resulting in Gasly’s retirement.
Oil from Gasly’s Honda engine – the manufacturer Red Bull will switch to after ending its Renault supply – was spewed directly into Verstappen’s cockpit, with the Dutchman unable to improve his visibility having already used all of his visor tear-offs in the race.
