So close yet so far for Max

With just four laps to go before the finish, Verstappen had to bid goodbye to the chequered flag after his rear tyre failed.

This happened while he was on the straight lane of the track.

The same situation was faced by Stroll who also had to bid goodbye to the finish line.

Red flags were out

Red Bull had no prior warning regarding the tyre situation.

As a result, they spoke to race director Michael Masi and red flags were deployed.

We can only wait and see how the race turns out for the other drivers.
