Max Verstappen And George Russel Collide!

From the grid Max came under immediate pressure from Russell and an exciting tussle followed through the opening corners.

With the both drivers not giving an inch and going wheel-to-wheel, Russell locked his wheels into Turn 2 and came together into Verstappen’s side, before eventually passing the Red Bull at Turn 3.

Max was very unhappy and continued to vent over the radio for the next few laps

Did he really drive into the side? I don’t understand how he can keep the position and he is damaging my car!

The race director saw it differently and ruled the collision as a racing incident.

The collision caused a visible hole in Max’s left hand sidepod. Max drove a masterful race in his damaged car and achieved third place. At the end of the race Max had some choice words to say to George.

Meet “Dickhead” And “Princess George”
