Steward says Verstappen could have won in Bahrain

Bahrain GP steward and former F1 driver Emanuele Pirro says Max Verstappen may have won last Sunday’s race if he had refused to hand back the lead to Lewis Hamilton. “You can’t say it’s ok to use it in the race, but you can’t overtake out there. Indeed, when Verstappen passed Hamilton for the lead, Masi immediately got on the radio to tell Red Bull that he would have to hand back the place. However, Verstappen hinted after the race that he was actually unhappy that he gave the place back to Hamilton. “Verstappen gave back the place and we did not have to deal with the case anymore.”. “Given what Hamilton did during the race, I expected Red Bull to fight it harder. “Perhaps they thought Verstappen would easily be able to get the place back.”.
