Max Verstappen has ended up in hospital after the accident with Lewis Hamilton in the first lap of the England race, held on Sunday at the Silverstone track.
The pilot is in good condition and has currently left the hospital, where he attended the race, which continued without him. Through a post on social networks, the Dutch pilot of Red Bull has accused the 7-time world champion with Mercedes for irregularities in piloting.
According to Max, Lewis’s wrong maneuver caused him to get off the track. Max Verstappen: “I am happy that I am well, but very disappointed that I was taken off the track that way. “The 10-second penalty does not help us and is not enough to do justice after that dangerous maneuver that Lewis made on the track.”

Further, the Dutchman bites the British rival, who after the race celebrated with the flag of his country in front of the fans: “Being forced to watch the celebrations from the hospital is a lack of respect and an unsportsmanlike gesture. “Anyway, we will move forward.”
Lewis Hamilton has said that there is no reason to apologize for the collision with Max Verstappen during a fast race in Silverstone, arguing that the Dutchman did not leave him space on the track.
“I was the first before the collision. I was completely inside, I was in my line and he turned towards me. I always try to be prudent in how I approach, especially when I battle with Max, he is very aggressive. I was completely by his side and he did not allow any space at all“- said Hamilton.
