  • Bahrain GP: Lewis Hamilton braced for hard race - and close season

Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton believes Max Verstappen's inexperience has cost Red Bull precious points this season.

Hamilton's Mercedes and the Red Bull of Verstappen were involved in a collision early on in the race, when the Dutchman was attempting to overtake.

Verstappen is the rising star of Formula One, already the victor of three races and a driver Hamilton rates as a future champion, but the Briton was critical of how the Dutchman drove at Sakhir on Sunday.

"And I don't know if they're inexperienced or not totally mature decisions, but [Red Bull] are not getting the results they should". It was a silly maneuver for himself, because he didn't finish the race.

"They've got a auto that should be getting good results".

"We got a bit squeezed but from the middle to the end of the corner I was ahead, I then felt a nudge from behind and could feel the puncture and therefore knew the race was likely over".

"I hope he (Verstappen) is learning through these situations".


'Do you think, comparing to football, if you have a microphone on a football player's mouth, that everything he says is a nice message when a guy tackles him and or fouls him?

"At the moment he said that, he was still full of adrenaline", Verstappen, 20, told Het Laaste Nieuws.

Last season, the battle for the title between Vettel and Hamilton was often a heated affair, which peaked during the Azerbaijan Grand Prix when Vettel deliberately rammed Hamilton's Mercedes when the race was neutralised by a Safety Car period. The Red Bull driver came out with a fresh set of supersoft tires, but then pulled up a lap later to make it a miserable evening for the Austrian team, who had already lost Ricciardo's vehicle to a technical fault.

"I'm going to get a positive mental thinking and hopefully the set-up works well in the race".

The Briton said that was something the team needed to address and would discuss ahead of this weekend's race in Shanghai.

"Maybe I need to go and watch the manoeuvre again, but it didn't feel like a respectful manoeuvre". "The radio wasn't working properly. And in the heat of the moment, it's very hard to know what information you need to give", he said. They couldn't hear me, I could hear them. "If I hit you in your face, you are not going to tell me, "Sebastian, that wasn't nice".
