Red Bull does not share Ferrari’s view about the outcome of the recent European grand prix.
Ferrari is still on the warpath about the Valencia stewards’ reaction to the safety car period, when Lewis Hamilton passed the AMG Mercedes but received only a drive-through penalty many laps later.
Enraged that the Briton still finished second, the Italian team’s website has now drawn attention to a short comment made on RAI radio by Pirelli president Marco Tronchetti Provera.
The Italian reportedly said it was “a chaotic situation which did incredible damage to Ferrari”.
But Australian driver Mark Webber says his Red Bull team has a different view.
“For me, everything in that race was fine,” he told the BBC. “I can only go on what my team told me … and they told me the race was handled normally.”
Meanwhile, Hamilton says a word of words about the incident with his former nemesis Alonso is now over.
“We (text) messaged the other day, things are cool,” the 2008 world champion told Reuters.
“He said everything’s cool and he knows how the racing world works and this is a tough year,” added Hamilton.
