Verstappen: Very disappointed with being taken out like this


Max Verstappen confirmed that he is “ok” after being taken to hospital following a collision with Lewis Hamilton during the British Grand Prix.

The championship rivals collided at Copse corner on the opening lap, with Verstappen sent into the barriers as a result.

The Dutchman suffered a severe impact and was taken to hospital as a “precaution”, according to Red Bull team principal Christian Horner.

Thankfully, Verstappen has now confirmed he is ok, but remains unhappy with Hamilton for his role in the incident and said that the 10-second penalty he received was insufficient.

“Glad I’m ok,” he wrote on Twitter. “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.”

Hamilton went on to win the race and Verstappen took issue with his celebrations afterwards.

“Watching the celebrations while still in hospital is disrespectful and unsportsmanlike behavior but we move on,” he added.
