Toro Rosso drivers' collision put down to 'miscommunication'

Max Verstappen driving the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing RB14 leads Brendon Hartley during the Formula One Grand

Gasly ran into his team-mate at Turn 14 when contesting for 18th place midway through the race, pitching Hartley into a spin and damaging his front wing.

"They told me on the radio "OK Brendon is going to let you past at the end of the straight", as we had said with the engineers", the Frenchman, who finished 18th, said.

Hartley was at the tail of the Formula One field when Toro Rosso team management called him in, with the vehicle having suffered problems throughout the 56-lap race.

Speaking to media after the race, Gasly made it clear that he believed Hartley had been instructed to let him by - and that he was caught by surprise when the Kiwi turned for the corner as normal. So I expected him to let me by, I went on the inside.

"I went on the inside and finally, I don't know if he didn't see me but I expected him to leave a bit of space for me to turn".

"I apologise to Brendon for the contact we had", said Gasly. It's a shame because it's the last thing you want to do, to have contact with your team mate and it's just a shame.

LeBron James Talks Lance Stephenson, Cavaliers Loss to Pacers in Game 1
The team couldn't stop Victor Oladipo , and there wasn't a player who could shoulder the offensive burden besides James. Despite his antics, Stephenson did have a decent game, finishing with 12 points and five rebounds off the bench.

Gasly revealed that the team had discussed position swaps before the race and that Turn 14 was the agreed spot for switching cars.

Gasly was deemed the culpable party and received a 10-second time penalty, along with two penalty points, while the resultant debris caused the deployment of the Safety Car, which changed the complexion of the win battle.

"I think the accident with Pierre was down to a miscommunication", he said.

"But my feeling is he must have thought that I was opening the door on the entry, which was not the case". "I think he thought I was letting him by, but I planned to let him by on corner exit as we were on different strategies". "Next time we need to make sure we have better communication between each other".

"The team asked us to swap positions because we were on completely different strategies, so I was going to let him by on the exit of Turn 14 like I did at the start of the race".

"We lost a lot of time after that, I broke my front wing and the steering bent at the end of the race, so it was really hard to drive and we couldn't do much from there".
