This Sunday, the Belgian Grand Prix ended after four laps. A decision that is controversial but that Daniel Ricciardo understands.
The Grand Prix de Spa took place this Sunday in incredible conditions. The start of the GP was initially given three hours late due to torrential rains. Then, when the race was able to start, it stopped after four laps, again because of the weather. But according to the regulations, half of the points were awarded to the drivers finishing in the first 10 places.
Ricciardo responds to critics
Daniel Ricciardo is one of them with his final fourth place. The Australian driver spoke in comments relayed by Nextgen-auto on this forced stop: “I was told after the race that if the 20 best riders in the world can’t race in the rain then they have to change jobs. My simplest answer, and the most polite, without trying to sound smart is is that it’s just physics, simple physics that the car won’t stay on the road. Could we go slower then like others have said? I guess we could. But then the problem is that because we are going slower there will be drivers who will attempt something that is beyond the physical capabilities of the car. It’s human. And then you will have a bigger incident. “
