I did a ****** job! - Charles Leclerc's radio rant following Turkish Grand Prix
Its right that he is angry, he did a mistake and lost the podium that way but as I said, in the big picture probably irrelevant for him. I think Im mature enough, I never let this kind of stuff really heat up and get between us.

Vettel is moving on at the end of the year, joining up with Racing Point as they morph into Aston Martin Racing. But there will clearly always be a fondness towards Leclerc.

Im happy for anything that he achieves and will achieve in the future because hes a good kid, the German said. Obviously [Turkey] was a very tough race and I think all of us, we were very close to losing it completely at various stages in the race. Obviously its extra painful when it happens in the last lap.
Was never much of a Vettel fan back in the day...but I think I misjudged him. The last couple of years I've really grown to like him.

It turns out that people do actually mature with age and become more likeable!

Maybe there is still hope for Max...

Apparently Red Bull put Verstappens front wing on upside down....it was only his masterful driving that got him up to 6th place.
The man is a genius!

I heard they actually installed his rear wing in the front, and his front one on the back!
Only someone with Max's outstanding race craft would have been capable of bringing that car home. GOAT!

i guess the pressure of being too speedy on a pitstop paid a bit this time.. but mate you were making fun of Merc's red flag timing and their system not working properly in Monza.. so Red Bull cant adjust a wing right with the same approach?

they can surely but mistakes happen in motorsports..

Anyone can make a mistake anytime keeping to a stopwatch.
