‘You can’t overtake in Spoon’

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen says “you can’t overtake in Spoon”; a comment aimed at the man who botched an overtake at the infamous corner during the Japanese Grand Prix.

Sebastian Vettel tried to pass Verstappen up the inside of the corner on lap eight, but the pair made contact, dropping Vettel down to 18th place.

Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner said Vettel’s move was “a bit late” and “opportunistic.”

Sebastian Vettel said he did not regret the move itself, just the outcome.
