On lap five of the Mexican Grand Prix, Max Verstappen was trying to overtake Valtteri Bottas and the Dutch did what he wanted.

The Dutchman clipped Bottas, which gave him a puncture, but Red Bull racing team advisor Helmut Marko pointed the blame in Bottas.

Auto Motor und Sport reports: “With the pace that we had, we could still win the race,” said Christian Horner who was assured that the incident with Hamilton did not really matter. “But then the flat tyre came. That tyre has ruined the entire race.”
