Red Bull Racing’s engineer and strategist didn’t fully taken in what Max Verstappen was saying about his tyres which cost the Dutch driver victory in the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday according to Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal.
Taking to Twitter following the race, Rahal said:
Really don’t understand Red Bull’s strategy there. Verstappen tires were so clearly gone when Hamilton made his stop, let alone 20 laps later. Prime example of an engineer/strategist not fully taking in what the driver was relaying about his tires 🤷🏻♂️
