“I gave it all today but clearly not quick enough. But still, happy with second.”
Verstappen also explained his Hamilton near-miss, saying he doesn’t ‘understand what happened’.
“I slowed down,” he said. “I wanted to let him by, so I’m on the right but he didn’t want to overtake and then we touched.
“I don’t really understand what happened there.
“A lot of things happened, which I don’t fully agree with, but it is what it is.
“I mean, at least I tried it on track, you know, to give it all.”
