The Dutch pilot Max verstappen, who had to leave the Grand Prix of Great Britain this sunday for a accident with Lewis Hamilton, harshly criticized the attitude of his British colleague. Verstappen accused Hamilton of “Disrespectful and unsportsmanlike” for having celebrated after the race while he was still in the hospital. Furthermore, he said that the maneuver he carried out was “dangerous.”
“I am happy to be well. Very disappointed to have finished like this (in the first lap). The sanction (ten seconds for Hamilton) does not help us and does not reflect the dangerous maneuver that Lewis carried out on the track ”, began Verstappen in his message through the social network Twitter. “Attending these celebrations while the (rival) driver is still in the hospital reveals disrespectful and unsportsmanlike behavior,” he added.
Finally Hamilton got his 8th Grand Prix of Great Britain and his 99th victory in the Formula 1, in a highly controversial career for his violent clash with Verstappen. After the impact, the Dutchman had to be treated and ended up in hospital, although fortunately without serious injuries. About four hours after the crash, Verstappen spoke out on social media and was tough on Hamilton.
England’s Hamilton only received a 10-second penalty for his maneuver that ended in the crash, which Verstappen highlighted as a “dangerous maneuver.” It should be noted that the Red Bull driver was leading the race on the first lap and at that time he received the crash of the Mercedes that left him out of the race. The 23-year-old was able to get out of the car on his own and was taken to the Silverstone Speedway medical center.
A word from the Red Bull team boss
Later, after medical check-ups, it was learned that Verstappen had no serious injury beyond a few minor blows. After this incident and in addition to the words of the Dutchman, the one who spoke was the Red Bull team boss, Christian Horner. “As for me, all the blame is on Hamilton, who should never have been in that position. He could have had a brutal accident. Thank God he was unharmed. So I hope he copes with it properly. “Horner pointed out.
