While he could aim for a place in the top ten, Esteban Ocon saw his Bahrain Grand Prix ruined by Sebastian Vettel.
The Aston Martin driver blocked the wheels and came to harpoon the hapless Alpine driver at turn 1 towards the end of the race, the two men losing precious time in the mishap.
The French, however, does not hold it against the German. No one is faultless, including a quadruple Formula 1 world champion.
“I watched the video of the incident again, Ocon said after the race. In the closed park, he approached me and apologized. He told me he had received a penalty. “
“He was penalized for that, so the case is closed for me, adds Esteban. If we were fighting for big points before the crash, I would have been clearly more unhappy. “
“In our misfortune, our cars have suffered little. We managed to finish the race, which proves that we fought until the end to reach the finish ” concludes the Norman.
