Er werd veel geroepen en gevloekt tijdens de slotfase van de GP van Mexico, maar wat zeiden de coureur nu precies?
Uit het volledige overzicht van de radioboodschappen bleek dat niet alleen Vettel flink zat te vloeken, maar ook Daniel Ricciardo was allerminst blij met het verloop van de slotronden. Hieronder vind je de radioberichten van Verstappen, Vettel en Ricciardo.
L68 – RB to Verstappen: Ok, give the position. I think you’re going to have to give the position back, Max.
L68 – Verstappen: Let me know!
L68 – RB to Verstappen: Ok, stay there!
L68 – Vettel: He has to let me go, he has to let me go.
L68 – FER to Vettel: Ok, copy. Stay calm!
L68 – Vettel: No, it’s not right. I don’t stay calm, cause he is blocking me into Ricciardo.
L68 – FER to Vettel: Copy that.
L68 – FER to Vettel: We’re on it with Charlie.
L68 – FER to Vettel: Ok, Verstappen has to give you the position. Watch for Ricciardo behind!
L68 – RB to Ricciardo: Okay mate, so let’s keep it smooth. Take advantage when you can.
L69 – FER to Vettel: 3 laps to go.
L69 – Vettel: Move! Move, for fucks sake!
L69 – FER to Vettel: He has been informed. He has to move.
L69 – Vettel: He’s a bastard, that’s what he is.
L69 – RB to Verstappen: Alright mate, this is going to be investigated after the race, so keep your head down. 2 laps.
L69 – RB to Ricciardo: Ok, 2 laps to go. Battery is full. Let’s go!
L70 – Vettel: Am I the only one, or are you not seeing what I’m seeing? He’s just backing me off into Ricciardo. Fuck me.
L70 – FER to Vettel: You have to fight with him. Charlie…
L70 – Vettel: What the hell are you talking about? He cut the chicane.
L70 – FER to Vettel: Ok, copy.
L70 – Vettel: And now, he’s brake-testing me.
L70 – Vettel: I mean, honestly, I’m going to hit someone. I think I have a puncture. Rear left.
L70 – Ricciardo: That was fucked. He moved on braking. I had already committed. Fuck.
L70 – RB to Ricciardo: Ok, understood. Vettel may have a puncture.
L70 – FER to Vettel: Tyres are fine. Tyres are fine.
L70 – FER to Vettel: The car is fine, you can fight. The car is fine, you can fight.
L70 – Vettel: He has to give me the position, end of the story.
L70 – FER to Vettel: Charlie said that… Charlie said…
L70 – Vettel: Yeah… you know what, here’s the message for Charlie: Fuck off! Honestly. Fuck off!
L70 – Arrivabene to Vettel: Sebastian, Sebastian… calm down! They are under investigation. I know that it’s not fair. But calm down. Put your head down and we will talk afterwards.
L70 – Vettel: Ok, copy Maurizio.
L71 – RB to Verstappen: Ok Max, last lap. Gap to Sebastian 1,7 seconds.
L71 – RB to Ricciardo: Ok mate, this is the last lap now. Tyre pressures are fine. This is the last lap.
L71 – Ricciardo: I’ve got a massive vibration. How is the gap behind?
L71 – RB to Ricciardo: Yeah, understood. You’ve got a 30 seconds gap behind to Raikkonen. Keep up the pace in case Vettel gets a penalty. You’ve got no threat from behind. Try to keep within 5 seconds if possible.
L71 – FER to Vettel: Ricciardo has lost pace behind. He’s 2,7 seconds behind. Try to stay as close as possible in case of 5 second penalty at the end. This is the last lap.

L71+1 – RB to Verstappen: Ah Max. What can I say, mate. Amazing job. Amazing job. Really well done.
L71+1 – Verstappen: That was hard.
L71+1 – RB to Verstappen: 59 laps on that set. Fantastic.
L71+1 – Horner to Verstappen: Well done Maxie, that was a fantastic drive. No debate about turn 1. were moaning about it, but you were well ahead and it was a lot less than Rosberg did at the beginning of the race. Great drive, you managed it well, and it was a great effort on Nico as well.
L71+1 – Verstappen: Yeah, thank you very much Christian. It was very hard the last 10 laps. But at the end I think it was still a very good result.
L71+1 – RB to Verstappen: Cool the car on the way in Max! And just a reminder: You will be stopping with Hamilton and Rosberg at Turn 13 in the stadium. Enjoy it!
L71+1 – FER to Vettel: P4, P4… slow and cool your brakes!
L71+1 – Vettel: I think I showed enough. I mean, overtaking is not a walk in the park. So to me it is clear. That’s the last what I’m saying.
L71+1 – Arrivabene to Vettel: Sebastian we understand, we talk afterwards and we are going to talk with FIA. You have done a great race, really. I am proud of you.
L71+1 – Vettel: Grazie ragazzi. The car was great, strategy worked well. Shame about yesterday because the pace was there to do more. Grazie.
L71+1 – RB to Ricciardo: Nice job on that mate.
L71+1 – Ricciardo: Yeah, but what about all these guys outbraking themselves at the first chicane? I mean Lewis at the start and Max the same. Put a fucking wall there and they won’t do it. That’s bullshit guys. Fucking kindergarten stuff.
L71+1 – RB to Ricciardo: Ok mate, understood. You did a very, very good job today. Pace was excellent. As I said, we are speaking to Charlie.
L71+1 – Horner to Ricciardo: Daniel that was as blatant a move as we’ve ever seen. The event notes are very, very clear. I don’t think you’ve got anything to fear. It was a great effort that you’ve put in and it was a great move that should have made stick.
L71+1 – RB to Ricciardo: Ok Daniel, we’re driving straight around to the pit entry. I let you have a chat with when you get there.
