 Exclusive: Max Verstappen slams ‘dangerous move’ by Lewis Hamilton which led to crash and labels Brit as ‘disrespectful and unsportsmanlike’ after winning British Grand Prix


Max Verstappen has echoed Red Bull chief Christian Horner’s claims that Lewis Hamilton’s ‘dangerous’ driving led to the Dutchman suffering an early exit from the British Grand Prix.

The home favourite collided with championship rival Verstappen on the opening lap, causing the latter to crash out.

Verstappen emerged from his car and was taken to hospital for precautionary checks, while Hamilton continued from second when the race resumed after a red flag pause.

And despite being given a ten-second penalty, Hamilton battled to claim the famous win at Silverstone.

Horner described Hamilton’s triumph as ‘hollow’ as he hugely criticised the Mercedes driver after the race.

Verstappen was also similarly furious but also with the way Hamilton celebrated the win.

He tweeted: “Glad I’m ok. Very disappointed with being taken out like this.

“The penalty given does not help us and doesn’t do justice to the dangerous move Lewis made on track.

“Watching the celebrations while still in hospital is disrespectful and unsportsmanlike behavior [sic] but we move on.”
