The frustrated Dutchman said it was a security setting in his engine that caused his failure at Spa on Sunday.
"They knew that this could happen," he said at a sponsor event in Milan on Wednesday.
"I understand that they want to protect their brand. But if the car stops, the car stops, whether it's for a safety setting or a blown engine."
Verstappen also admitted he lost his temper with a journalist at Spa, after it was suggested his overly aggressive driving style was causing his technical failures in 2017.
"I was upset because that's not possible. Even if I wanted to I couldn't break the engine," said the 19-year-old Dutchman.
"So if someone is saying that, he doesn't understand formula one at all."
"Max must stay with us as we have a firm contract and we do not let him go," he told Auto Bild.
