The Dutchman gestured angrily at Hamilton and drove toward the Mercedes, visibly infuriated. In response, Hamilton extended his hand in apology, but Verstappen was too frustrated to accept it.

Max said, “It’s not the first time. You try to stay calm ofcourse, but it happened again. But I dont want to talk about it too much, because that wasn’t our problem today. We need to fix our speed.”
