Max explained the incident: "So, we were all lining up to do our lap, or to get to the last corner, and I think it was Seb, the first Ferrari, then Charles and then I had Dany in front of me and we were all just slowing down to make space, and Lewis just drove by like nobody was there and didn't care.
"So I was like, 'Well, if you don't care, I don't care'.
"I want to get my position back. I mean, everybody's just respecting each other at that point, just to start the lap. That's why it was such a close call."
