F1: Top 5 blunders of the 2018 season
#4 Daniel Ricciardo – Azerbaijan GPAzerbaijan F1 Grand Prix
The Red Bulls had been dicing with each other since the second lap of the Grand Prix, though it was all fair and clean and rather enjoyable with the best driver pairing of the grid treating the fans to some nice and hard racing. However it was short-lived, as soon after the first round of pit stops, Ricciardo attacked his teammate, feigning a move to the outside and then immediately moving onto the inside.
Not to be outdone, Max Verstappen covered the apex on the inside under braking and his teammate clattered into his gearbox - taking them both out of the race and causing a safety car. The safety car stopped a near-certain Sebastian Vettel victory and instead, Lewis Hamilton emerged victoriously.The turning point maybe? Needless to say, there weren’t too many handshakes being exchanged in the Red Bull pit garage.Published 26 Dec 2018, 20:05 IST
