“He’s frustrated” – Safety Car Driver reacts to Lewis Hamilton’s whinging
In recent months, Lewis Hamilton has complained a lot about the safety car driving too slowly during races. Bernd Maylander, the safety car driver, announced that he knows what Lewis is saying on the radio as he has the opportunity to listen to the radio messages from the driver team.

He also claimed the 6-time world champion may have been frustrated that the safety car was ruining the healthy lead he had built during the race.

Bernd’s response to Lewis Hamilton and his criticism

During a podcast, Maylander announced that if Lewis complained about his driving, he would receive messages from his friends in the middle of a race.

Sometimes I get messages from friends during the race. “Lewis has already complained that you are driving too slowly. Is that true?’“He said to F1’s Beyond the Grid.

He also acknowledged Lewis’ frustration with the safety cars. “I can understand him because when he’s the leader in the race. Let’s say he is leading by 10 seconds. And then the safety car drives slowly.

“He’s frustrated. But in the end he knows it’s a fast street car, but it’s not a racing car. So he fully understands. That is, shall we say, his character.

“Sebastian and other drivers also complain that the safety car is too slow. No problem for me personally“He made it clear.

I don’t have to listen to the drivers’ radio messages: Bernd

Bernd admitted that despite the possibility of hearing the drivers’ radio messages during the safety car phase, he never decided to do so. “I could hear them. I could easily tell the communication people: “Let me listen to the drivers too.”,” he said.

But it probably doesn’t make sense. I have a passenger with me, Richard. He makes the radio and answers on the radio. I can talk into the radio system all the time.

“But it doesn’t make sense to listen to the drivers. I hear race control. I get information from the race management. ”

While racing at the Nürburgring recently, Lewis claimed that security was too slow during their time. In view of the extremely low track temperature that day, he mentioned that with the safety car’s low speed it was almost impossible to get your tires up to the optimum temperature.

Looking to the future, the safety car driver could still hear such comments from the Brit and the other drivers during the race weekends in Imola and Turkey, as temperatures are expected to be below 18 ° C.

In addition, Formula 1 will be relocated to the Middle East. Therefore, the track temperature is high enough to bring the tires up to temperature without any problems.
