Max Verstappen crashed out of the British Grand Prix at speed on the first lap after contact with title rival Lewis Hamilton in a wheel-to-wheel battle.

Red Bull’s Formula one driver Max Verstappen has hit out at Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton following the Briton’s dramatic win at the British Grand Prix. The Dutch driver accused Hamilton of “disrespectful and unsportsmanlike behaviour" on Sunday after the two collided at the British Grand Prix.

“Glad I’m ok. 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," Verstappen tweeted.

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