Red Bull's Helmut Marko 'doesn't understand' Lewis Hamilton stance on 'terrifying' race


Lewis Hamilton has come under fire from Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko for his comments on the Turkish Grand Prix. Hamilton won the race in Istanbul to equal Michael Schumacher's all-time race win record back in November, but it was a far from the comfortable race. Red Bull chief Marko disagreed entirely with Hamilton's assessment, stating it made for a fascinating race. ''I would also like to say that the people who laid the asphalt in Istanbul deserve a medal," he told Motorsport-total.com. "I do not understand why the best driver in the world says it was impossible to drive there. The images were sensational and it was the same for everyone. A Williams doesn't slide more than a Mercedes, because the grip simply isn't there. For me that was a great moment of excitement'." He added: "First of all, the drivers get paid enough that they have to endure it, and secondly, it was the same for everyone. We were the big losers in Istanbul. We dominated every session, Q1, Q2. And then there's a team that has optimised the air pressure and they're bang on pole position. For Verstappen it was the only race this year in which he became impatient."
