Yes... But the fact that he apologized for what he said indicates that there weren’t any translation issues

Nope. Thats standard PR. Everyone apologizes always forever unconditionally. It's how it is these days.
Yup, his apology is more about how it came off, not what he was trying to say. here's a good article of RedBulls Simon Rennie explaining how different drivers use different ways to describe what they are trying to say.
Former Red Bull race engineer: "Takes time to understand what they're saying"
""Two drivers might be feeling the same thing in the car - but they’ll talk about it in a different way, or use completely different language. It takes time to understand what they’re saying, translate that into engineering terminology we can all understand and work with – because it’s very possible initially they’ll be describing the driving experience using descriptive words only they understand" he explains.
Rennie: "comprehending what they’re really saying is half the battle. The other half is understanding what they need from the balance of the car to make them go as fast as possible."
The fact is theres always translation issues, period. Just need to give it time for driver and engineers to be in tune.
