Valtteri Bottas has questioned Lance Stroll’s driving manners due to an accident at the Australian Grand Prix that resulted in a time limit for the Aston Martin driver.
Following the Australian Grand Prix, Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas was enraged with Aston Martin competitor Lance Stroll.
During Sunday’s race, the two drivers went close on a few of times as they battled for the last points-paying spots at Albert Park.
The stewards scrutinised Stroll for weaving and reportedly forcing Bottas off the track during their fight.
The Canadian was given a five-second time penalty and one punishment point was applied to his driving licence as a consequence of his actions, putting him only three points away from a race ban.
Bottas on Stroll: That’s not how you should race
Bottas walked away from the brawl unscathed and went on to score four crucial points for his Alfa Romeo squad.
But he thinks it could have been more if the mishaps hadn’t prevented him from going on to fight Alpine’s Esteban Ocon for eighth.
“The weaving just made it really hard for me to decide where to go. It was a bit on the limit, I guess,” said an unhappy Bottas, post-race.
“And then yeah, that pass, obviously it forced me to go off the track. I don’t think that’s how you should race. I’m still amazed to get through it.
“I think that cost me a bit of time, for sure. Maybe Esteban was reachable, otherwise. But still, four points is not bad.”
As the final driver on the lead lap, Stroll ended outside of the results in 12th place.
