Daniel Ricciardo on Max Verstappen Being Angry With Lewis Hamilton
There was some level of controversy after the incident as Verstappen appeared to walk away from the wreckage without checking on Hamilton – but Ricciardo insisted it was not what it seemed.
“I know Max, we were teammates for a few years,” Daniel Ricciardo told the Pardon My Take podcast.
“That’s him, he is a competitor he’ll leave it on the track and that’s it. I guess he still maybe was carrying a bit of anger or a little bit of frustration from Silverstone.”
