Spanish Grand Prix: Crying child highlights new face of Formula One


Kimi Raikkonen described the incident that took himself and Max Verstappen out of the Spanish Grand Prix as a "weird accident" at the start of the race.

Raikkonen, the 2007 world champion and one of the sport's most popular drivers, collided on the opening lap with Red Bull's 2016 race victor Max Verstappen, and retired.

Bottas' slight nudge of Raikkonen caused a chain-reaction, sending Raikkonen into Verstappen.

"I got hit on the right rear corner, I think it was Bottas, and then obviously the vehicle jumped because of that and I went into Max". And when Bottas' engine expired, Ricciardo inherited third place to take Red Bull's second podium of the season.

Just leave non-perishable food donations in a bag by your mailbox on Saturday, May 13th and your letter carrier will do the rest. Despite nationwide participation, what's donated locally stays within Logan County, said Bellefontaine Postmaster Steve Dunton.

When the Mercedes understeered gently into the side of the Ferrari at the apex, Raikkonen's auto was pitched across the track, colliding with Verstappen and forcing both across the escape area.

His spirits picked up a bit shortly afterwards, as he was seen celebrating for Raikkonen's teammate, Sebastian Vettel, and his thrilling pass on Valtteri Bottas ate, which occurred at the end of the long run down to Turn 1. If Valtteri had not touched Kimi, we all would have had enough room to get through that corner. "I haven't see the images, but the reason was I got hit from behind and then ended up touching with Max". "I tried to go around the outside as there was plenty of room there." explained Verstappen after the race. "But unfortunately Valtteri touched Kimi and then Kimi couldn't control the vehicle and he slammed into me". There was nothing me or Max could have done, when you get hit from behind in that way there's no way to avoid the collision.

"The start was good, again, the getaway was nice and I was catching up very quickly on the guys in front".

"After an unfortunate race for me it's important to focus and look ahead to Monaco, I'm hoping we can continue to improve and have a good fight there".
