Charles Leclerc has questioned the legality of the overtake from Max Verstappen in the latter stages of the Austrian Grand Prix which cost him the victory and handed the win to the Dutchman.
On lap 69 at the Red Bull Ring, Verstappen aggressively burst beyond Leclerc after failing to do so on two previous occasions, with the cars touching slightly as the former went ahead.
The Ferrari driver had enjoyed an excellent race until that point after taking pole, but was unable to stop the assault from Verstappen, who tore through the grid after previously dropping places after an awful start.
In Leclerc’s eyes, it wasn’t a fair overtake manoeuvre.
“Overall the race was good, “ he said.
“At the end I had a bit more degredation than I thought so Max came back.
