FIA race director Charlie Whiting says he doesn’t feel a need to talk to Max Verstappen about his driving, he “made a mistake” and he was penalised for it.
Verstappen was handed a 10-second time penalty in China for colliding with Sebastian Vettel in what can only be described as a clumsy mistake.
The Dutchman immediately held up his hand, and apologised to Vettel for his antics.
It was the second time in two races that Verstappen has made contact with another driver, having clattered into Lewis Hamilton in Bahrain.
But despite that Whiting says he doesn’t feel a need to speak with the driver.
