Verstappen Sr fans flames by claiming Hamilton should have been disqualified

Verstappen Sr fans flames by claiming Hamilton should have been disqualified

Max Verstappen's father Jos has poured fuel on the fire of the debate surrounding the Red Bull driver's British Grand Prix collision with Lewis Hamilton by claiming the seven-time F1 champion should have been disqualified.

Verstappen was released from Coventry hospital at 10pm on Sunday evening after being given the all-clear following a range of scans and tests after his 150mph, 51g impact with a tyre barrier at Silverstone's Copse corner.

The Dutch driver was left shaken up by the crash after he and Hamilton had banged wheels through the 180mph right-hander that sent him spearing off into the tyre wall.

Hamilton was handed a 10-second penalty for being "predominantly at fault" for causing a collision, according to the FIA stewards.

The Mercedes driver, however, later incurred the wrath of Red Bull team principal Christian Horner who accused the Briton of being "desperate", "dangerous" and an "amateur".

Jos Verstappen has also been left incredulous at the leniency of Hamilton's penalty.

“It's really unacceptable what he [Hamilton] did," said Verstappen, speaking to Dutch publication De Telegraaf.

“I think a 10-second time penalty is really ridiculous. As far as I am concerned they should have disqualified him.

“Max gives him space and is just in front of him. You can't overtake on the inside."

Verstappen Sr has revealed his son was flown to Coventry hospital via helicopter and underwent brain scans, with Jos later adding that Max "feels good in himself".

You may need to check the rulebook again.

Verstappen moved aggressively right on the straight then tracked back to the left meaning he had to leave Hamilton a cars width in the corner.

He aimed his car towards the apex of the corner in another typically aggressive move hitting Hamilton who was himself struggling to make the apex due to understeer.

Both drivers at fault for me but Hamilton had to take a PR penalty.
