Lewis Hamilton given grid penalty for Bahrain GP

Verstappen blames horsepower surge for crash

The Red Bull driver has spun twice in the opening two events of the new 2018 season and retired from the Bahrain GP on Sunday after a clash with Hamilton caused irrevocable damage to his vehicle.

Hamilton battled his way to a podium finish despite struggling to communicate with the pits due to apparent interference on the radio, as Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel held off Valtteri Bottas to make it two wins from two races.

He said: 'I think it's not a fair question. If you are just out of the auto, you are still full of adrenaline, so yeah.

Coulthard said: "Where I think Max has just been too aggressive is he has continued to open the steering".

"I am doing 34.3, is that enough?" a bewildered Hamilton replied, later adding, "Feels like you guys are not giving me much of a picture".

Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini Could Be On The Way
We are yet to see a new Galaxy smartphone competing with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and Honor 9 Lite. This is not the first time that there are rumors about a Mini version of Samsung's flagship smartphone.

In just the second lap of the race, Verstappen made an overtake on Hamilton but his Red Bull clipped the front of the Mercedes causing a left-rear puncture.

Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo was the fifth fastest driver in qualifying, nearly two tenths slower than Hamilton, but will be starting the race in fourth place as Hamilton moves the order. "I had a good tow on the straight, the last corner was really good so it allowed me to stay close to Lewis." he said. In Bahrain he crashed in qualifying which forced him to start from 15th on the grid, before the early exit.

Lewis Hamilton believes that Max Verstappen's lack of experience is costing the Red Bull driver points.

"If you look at it, I was actually ahead for quite a period of time", Hamilton later told reporters after having gone through replays of the incident.

Hamilton's strive for perfection also works against him at times, for he lets frustrations linger. Who was wrong, or was it just a racing incident? "There were things we could have done to make sure we came out ahead". Ultimately, I had a coming together with Max and it was an unnecessary collision. As the Finn pulled away, he ran over Francesco Cigarini, who was out of his field of vision, leaving him with a broken tibia and fibula in his left leg. Cigarini was rushed to hospital, where he underwent a successful operation, while Raikkonen retired from the race. "I can't really remember at what stage of the race it was or why we were even in that position, but yeah, I don't really care to be honest". Sky Sports F1 will show live coverage from Shanghai.
