The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix was the promised highlight.

We have summarized the voices on the Formula 1 race.

Imola - What a race in Imola: rain chaos, heavy impacts, middle finger scandal *, racing interruption - and a winner who is not Lewis Hamilton!

Max Verstappen won the Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna *, the world champion had to be content with second place after the Grand Prix seemed to have ended in the meantime.

Because Hamilton made a mistake when lapping and ended up in the gravel.

But he worked his way back from ninth place and ended up second.

Sebastian Vettel * and Mick Schumacher * did not have a good afternoon.

We have summarized the voices about the race in Imola:

Max Verstappen (Red Bull) after the race over ...

... the rain: “It was a big challenge, especially at the beginning.

It was hard to stay on the track, it was so slippery.

We then found the right moment to put on slicks.

Now of course I'm happy. "

Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) after the race over ...

... the crazy race: “Congratulations to Max, that was a fantastic job.

And also on Lando, great.

It wasn't my best day, the first time I've made a mistake again in a long time.

It was just a dry line on the track, I probably wanted to go too fast.

Then it happened.

I am very grateful that we were able to finish that. "

Lando Norris (McLaren) after racing over ...

... his podium: “I am really happy and of course I hope that it will continue like this.

I knew it would be difficult in the end.

But I still had three or four laps in the car. "

Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) after the race over ...

... the messed-up afternoon: “There wasn't much that was positive today. We already had problems getting the car to the starting grid. We made a major mistake, the brakes got too hot. It even caught fire and damaged the casing. Then we had to start out of the pits. It was then difficult to get the tires up to temperature. I took a risk and went on dry tires.

... about the time penalty: “Unfortunately we then had a penalty that the race management came up with very late. That was already clear before the start. Maybe the filter in the coffee machine was full and that's why it took so long. Of course, that didn't help because the tires then got even colder. In the end we had problems with the gearbox - it shouldn't be today. At the moment there are very few laps that are running without problems for us. Too many small mistakes still happen to us, including me. "

... possible updates: “We need a bigger step to make a difference.

We'll get something in the next races and hope to take a step forward.

At the moment we're more in the back of the midfield.

But that can change quickly if we take small steps forward and calm down. "

Mick Schumacher (Haas) after the race over ...

... the rain: “I didn't see much in the first corner, I can say that much.

Driving into the curve so blindly without knowing where it is is a strange feeling.

It was a good experience, I learned from it. "

... his crash: “I'm not exactly sure, but as soon as the car erupted, it was a puddle or a moment of aquaplaning.

I don't know how to answer that.

I have to look again. "

... his emotional state: “I'm really angry, it was very unnecessary.

We were in a good position.

We could have been in the top eleven, twelve.

We would have scratched the points.

I didn't take this chance, that's annoying.

I'm very critical, but it was also my second race.

We learned a lot and we can hopefully take it with
