The Mexican Grand Prix and Daniel Ricciardo Gets Third Spot BOOM! Gone is Vettel After All That Whining

Sebastian Vettel was fuming on the track, saying he was going to hit someone and wagging his finger, delivering a message to race director Charlie Whiting: “F*** off. Honestly f*** off.” and after all that fuss and whining as Max Verstappen put it “crying like a child”.

Daniel 14606933_1151911978223075_9131605563744976896_nRicciardo has eventually finished third after Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen were handed time penalties in a controversial Mexican F1 Grand Prix.

Let’s set the stage. Max Verstappen crossed the line third, but a five-second penalty for leaving the track and gaining an advantage meant he was initially relegated to fifth.

That pushed Sebastian Vettel into third and Verstappen’s Australian team-mate, Ricciardo, up to fourth.
Immediately after the race, Verstappen stood awkwardly alongside frosty Mercedes pair Hamilton and Rosberg in the podium room before seeing his time penalty take effect on the screen.

The 19-year-old then took his leave before Ferrari’s Vettel jogged into the room as what was then thought to be the official third-place winner.

Eventually, the race standings were amended and Vettel was handed a 10-second penalty for “potentially dangerous” driving — dropping him from third to fifth, moving Verstappen up to fourth, and Ricciardo on to the bottom step of the podium.

Ricciardo also said Hamilton deserved a penalty for cutting a corner in similar fashion to Verstappen on an earlier corner and the teenager agreed.

“Lewis ran off, he gained a massive advantage … I didn’t even gain an advantage, so I think it’s ridiculous,” Verstappen said.

Max Verstappen Is Future World Champion and He Is Not Gonna Take S**T From Anyone – Belgium Grand Prix F1

I used to sponsor racing teams and race car drivers.  Once a race car driver I had sponsored John Graham (who also drove for Paul Newman) at the first Indy car race in Toronto came to me and said, “I’m gonna keep the car safe a try a podium third place”.  When I heard these words I flew off the handle, I was just dropping $250,000 and this guy never once said I am gonna go out and try to win this.

To me racing is a game of life and death, not to be reckless but go out and let people know you are there to win full stop.  Yes, you could die doing it, but it’s why you do it.  I never sponsored John ever again.

Much later to sponsor a racing team of former Ferrari F1 driver (Little Lief) Stefan Johansson , his team, him personally (because the Swede Stefan is just so talented ) during a race in Le Mans, and a driver Ryan Hunter-Reay.

In F1, through Labatt Breweries of Canada, several world champion drivers, Canadian Gilles Villeneuve, Nigel Mansell, and Damon Hill.  I may have one eye but I can spot a driver who has what it takes and to me Max Verstappen has what it takes and he is not taking any s**t from anyone.

The main talking point that came from Belgium Grand Prix was about Max Verstappen’s aggressive driving style, as they say in Hollywood, who gives a f**k what anyone says about you at least they are talking about you. I read the tweets, people calling him an idiot and you know what grow up and welcome to the world of racing.

“I think they should be ashamed to cause a crash like that with their amount of experience and then complain to me” – Max Verstrappen about Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel. 

Max would later explain, “on the video you can clearly see when Vettel turns in, he drives into Raikkonen and then Kimi’s car bumps into mine… I’m not gonna say come on through.”  Now this is a kid I love, I’ve just seen lot of young upstarts at their first Olympics in Rio give it there all and take gold, and Max is one of my new favorite drivers, and if anyone else can’t take the heat, well you know what comes next.
