There was no shortage of controversy at the Bahrain Grand Prix, and former F1 driver Paul di Resta hopes the incident involving Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton sets a precedent for the rest of the season.

With four laps left in the race Verstappen went off track in Turn 4 in an attempt to pass the Mercedes driver. The race stewards eventually asked the Dutchman to yield his position, handing the victory to Hamilton. Speaking about the incident after the race, Paul di Resta hopes the incident sets a precedent that will be followed for the remainder of the season.

"You can see Max is holding out there," Di Resta stated on Sky Sports F1. "I think the drivers are confused listening to the team radios, because Lewis was even saying 'why am I not allowed to use that bit of the track?'. We say there are no track limits. Would people say it's a big advantage? Probably not, but you don't like to see cars overtake when they aren't within the white lines.

"That's what I think you've got to stick to for the rest of the year. Don't complain about it, it will come back and I think the two of them are gonna have great fights all year."

Di Resta believes Verstappen will rue the missed opportunity, as he believes the Red Bull driver would have taken victory if he had just waited a bit longer to make the pass.

"Unfortunately Max will be sitting there tonight thinking well I should have waited another corner ," Di Resta added. "What he could have done was got down to the last corner, let Lewis past, made Lewis kind of get off line himself and get his tyres dirty and done it again up Turn 4 and that's always going to be the big question.

"He probably would have got the job done and he would have been P1."
