FINAC Valtteri Bottas was the fastest in the first free practice of the Portuguese Grand Prix in Algarve.
Bottas is 0.025 percentage points faster than Max Verstappen, while Lewis Hamilton is only fifth. The British complained to people about the condition of the car during the training process from the boxing match.
Hamilton said on the radio: “I have to go back to the boxing ring because we have to change something. Currently, this car cannot be driven.”
Max Verstappen was equally happy, and he also complained about the bad situation.
“This is ridiculous. Due to the strong vibration, I can’t see where I am driving.” The Dutchman said on the radio and was asked from the pit whether the car was unsafe.
Verstappen answered sarcastically, “No. I just need to go to the dentist on Monday.”
The Portuguese Grand Prix is the third leg of this year’s World Cup. Lewis Hamilton’s views are more important than Verstappen.
