“It’s not true that I’m mad at my team,” Hamilton said on his Instagram account. ,,We took the risk of going longer, hoping that the track would dry up, but that didn’t happen. I wanted to take the risk to continue (without a stop, ed.), but that was my decision and it didn’t work out well. The safest thing to do was that we decided it was wiser to make a pit stop.”
Hamilton ignored previous requests from his team Mercedes to enter Istanbul. A third place beckoned for the Briton who started eleventh, but it ended up being fifth. His gap on Max Verstappen in the battle for the world title is now six points.
“We win and lose together as a team. Don’t expect me to always be polite and calm about the onboard radio when I’m racing. We are all very passionate and in the heat of the moment that can come out for a while, but that goes for all drivers.”
