The 24-year-old driver had still had a race before the mechanical problems occurred.
“It’s disappointing because I had a good start gaining five places in the first lap and I think one or two points would have been possible,” he added.
His teammate Fernando Alonso, for his part, concluded his working day in eighth place.
Verstappen and Red Bull dominate once again
Max Verstappen continued his domination on Sunday by winning a 13th Grand Prix this season.
The Dutchman thus allows Red Bull to win a second constructors’ title in Formula 1 in their history.
With six races remaining in the season, Verstappen is in a good position to bank a third world championship.
The two McLaren team drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri finished the race in second and third position respectively.
The drivers will benefit from two weeks of rest and will return to the wheel on Friday October 6 during free practice for the Qatar Grand Prix.
