According to Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko.

“We thought he would be completely stiff from the hard impact, but he only has a minor sore throat. Otherwise, everything is fine, “said the Austrian expert in an interview with RTL.

At the end of Sunday’s first round of dramatic racing, the Dutch leader of the series collided with reigning champion Briton Lewis Hamilton, who was later penalized by ten seconds for his aggressive driving style.

At 290 km / h, the Verstappen crashed into a tire barrier, exerting a 51G force at the time.

He got out of the car on his own, but apparently shaken, he headed for an examination at Coventry Hospital.

From there, accompanied by Father Jos, he moved into a hotel room. “He left the hospital without serious injuries, his father stayed in the hotel with him overnight, but only for safety reasons,” said Marko.

The former Formula 1 pilot quantified the damage suffered by Red Bull as track staff removed the remains of Verstappen’s monopost.

“At the moment, it looks like a quarter of a million euros. And we don’t know yet if we will be able to save at least a Honda engine from a car wreck, “said the 78-year-old native of Graz, who also won the well-known Le Mans 24-hour endurance race during his career.

Verstappen said on the social network that he did not like him as his main competitor Hamilton celebrated the triumph in Silverstone at a time when he had to undergo professional examinations in the hospital and could not really compete with him on the track. He described it as a lack of respect for him.

The seven-time world champion Hamilton reacted by saying nothing to excuse himself because the aggressive bike-to-bike ride was performed by both actors.

He later told Autosport that he did not want the incident to break mutual respect between the two biggest rivals in the fight for the championship title.

“We should learn from this accident and find a balance in our rides so that such dangerous moments do not happen.

It rarely happens that only one driver causes such a thing. It is usually a combination of what two or more competitors will show on the track.

That’s why Max and I should learn a lesson and maintain mutual respect for the future, “said Hamilton.
