Red Bull too euphoric in Bahrain says Marko

Dr Helmut Marko does not think Max Verstappen made a mistake by letting Lewis Hamilton re-pass him for the lead and victory in Bahrain last weekend. Bahrain GP steward Emanuele Pirro this week revealed that the “maximum” penalty the FIA could have given the Dutchman for his illegal pass on Hamilton was a five second penalty. “Max said that he could have easily made up for the five second penalty by driving away at the front,” team official Marko told Osterreich newspaper. “But then they just would have given him 10 seconds,” he insisted. “At Imola, we will have more or less the car we had in Bahrain,” said the Austrian.
