For me I was not off-base, Verstappen said. Just I was off-base others didn’t get anything.

We were both out of control. Some way or another they passed judgment on it was my shortcoming, which I disagree with, and the other punishment too I disagree with. And afterward subsequently he pushed me out of control and he even ganders at me and pushes me off the track edge and he just gets an admonition for that.
