Max Verstappen blames sudden power spike for Bahrain GP qualifying crash with Red Bull driver to start down in 15th: 'For me it was also a big surprise'



Max Verstappen blamed a sudden and unexpected spike in engine power for sending him spinning into the barriers in Bahrain Grand Prix qualifying.
The 20-year-old Red Bull driver had been struggling in practice at the Sakhir circuit, reporting that the Renault engine was not delivering the punch it should when set to higher power modes.
In Saturday's qualifying, however, it delivered an extra 150 horsepower just as Verstappen exited the second corner, causing his car's rear wheels to break traction with the track and pitch him off.
