Vettel: Verstappen move was 'not correct'

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Sebastian Vettel says Max Verstappen's overtaking manoeuvre towards the end of the Brazilian Grand Prix was "not correct".

Verstappen passed Vettel by undercutting him at Juncao and pushing the Ferrari wide over the kerb on the exit of the corner. No action was taken by the stewards, but Vettel believed Verstappen had been too aggressive in the overtake.

"I think I was racing him side-by-side, he saw me, I still had a little bit of my nose ahead," he said. "He was much faster so it was about the corner where you get past. I don't think it was correct."

Vettel finished fifth after recovering from an early spin coming out of the final corner on lap 11.

"Obviously, it was not ideal in the first part to spin," he said. "I had some aquaplaning but I wasn't the only one. I think it was a good recovery in the end, difficult to come back.

"I struggled to get past Carlos [Sainz for fifth], I don't know why it took a lot of laps but by then it was too late."
