Mazepin was unhappy that Schumacher had overtaken him on their laps and then slowed down so much when Vettel approached, but with so many cars nearby, the inspectors stated that none of the drivers considered this to be an unnecessary hindrance.
« Itthere is no doubt that the Auto 5 lap has been compromised; However, we take particular note of the comment from the driver of car 5 that “there were too many cars in one place”, ”the stewards said. « There were at least six cars in line preparing for a fast lap, and all of them were driving at slow speeds (some under 50 km / h) while Car 5 approached at up to 150 km / h.
“Although Car 5 was handicapped, under the circumstances it was not an ‘unnecessary handicap’ (from Article 31.5). The drivers and team representatives present agreed. «
» I’m really annoyed, to be honest, because with the traffic it shouldn’t have been that difficult, since you can get the first car within an F1 team in one weekend you’re the second car next weekend, « said Mazepin. “This weekend it was my turn to be the first car, and I overtook the first car once in Imola when I was second and I got some nonsense from the team happens second time he overtakes me and rams me in traffic and intentionally fucks my last try in qual so i am not happy because if you do it once and he did it? I don’t know well but this is intentional twice and I don’t like when there is tension it shouldn’t be. I’ve already told the team what I think and they agree. ”
Schumacher said he had been allowed to overtake Mazepin in order to better prepare his tires and was surprised that there was uncertainty later was.
« We talked to the team about it, I drove through the pit lane, my tires cooled down, so I usually do a faster out lap, » explained Schumacher. “In this case Nikita did a slow out lap, so I asked for overtaking maneuvers, which gave me the OK, which I did. Early enough.
“I also had Lando (Norris) between us, so I don’t really understand the confusion in the last corner. Of course that messed up a few things for everyone. «
In the discussion with the stewards, Mazepin said that Vettel had shown great athleticism in order to look at the broader subject.
» Sebastian was a true gentleman than he tackled the global problem that everyone in Formula 1 is slowing down on the last corner, « said Mazepin. « I apologized to him and thanked him for his honesty, and I was really grateful for his behavior in this incident. »
