Lando Norris has lamented the "stupid" first lap incident that forced him to retire from second at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
The McLaren driver made a stellar start to vault past both Red Bulls and Valtteri Bottas before the Mercedes driver collided with the rear of Norris' car, triggering the carnage.
Verstappen sustained heavy damage after contact with Norris, whilst Sergio Perez was forced into retirement along with Bottas, Norris, Lance Stroll and Charles Leclerc, with the latter duo involved in a separate incident.
A red-flag period followed to clean up the extensive amount of debris left on the circuit.
"Not much to say. Just annoyed I guess," Norris told Sky Sports F1 after the incident.
"On lap one, I don't know why that has to happen and why risk doing those kinds of stupid things but nothing I could do. I was second."
Referencing a plethora of penalties handed to him over the previous 12 months, Norris added: "If I get a penalty for not even doing anything wrong at other tracks then it deserves a much bigger penalty than what I got.
"I hope they [the stewards] have some common sense and do what they should do but it is not up to me."
