Verstappen and Mercedes flirt on Twitter


Max Verstappen had a tongue in cheek Twitter session with Mercedes in the wake of Nico Rosberg’s shock decision to quit Formula 1 and with it leave open the most coveted seat on the grand prix grid..

Just about every top driver – including the likes of Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso -has been linked to the seat including teenage sensation Max Verstappen who by all accounts has a cast in steel deal with Red Bull.

Nevertheless this did not stop the young Dutchman indulging in some cheeky chit-chat on Twitter.
