After the collision, the Dutchman was silent even on his team radio. And when inquired upon by his team, Verstappen just gave his team a little murmur. However, looking back at the incident Christian Horner gave some new information.
Christian Horner on Max Verstappen’s Silverstone Collision
“Understandably he was hugely frustrated with the outcome at Silverstone because he had done all the hard work,” the Red Bull team boss Christian Horner told Channel 4. “He had won the sprint race, started on pole during the race and held the start.”
“It got pretty tasty down the Wellington Straight and then of course there was the crash,” continued the Briton. “It was a massive accident. It broke the seat and I think it knocked him out. It was for sure the biggest crash of his career.”
