Valtteri Bottas was extremely dissatisfied with the behavior of his team-mate Lewis Hamilton shortly before the end of qualifying, when the Briton had passed the Bottas heating circuit just before the fast attempt began.
While Hamilton finished second, Bottas also fell behind Max Verstappen and will only start the race for the GP of Singapore from his fifth start.
The Finnish blamed his teammate for qualifying for a poor performance.
“I don't know what Hamilton was thinking, because it ruined my fast lap. I was making room for the racer in front of me, and then Lewis overtook me and I had to slow down, and as a result I lost the tire temperature. As a result, I have already lost a few tenths in the first sector and the prospect of a good result was over. ”
