Red Bull furious at Hamilton: Thank God he's walked away unscathed

Christian Horner is not happy about the incident between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. According to the Red Bull Racing team boss, it was clearly the Mercedes driver's fault. Horner states that the manoeuvre of Hamilton was life-threatening.

"Copse is one of the fastest corners in the world, you don’t stick a wheel up the inside, that’s just dirty driving," said Horner. Speaking to Channel 4, he went on to reveal that Verstappen was hugely fired up and Hamilton was "Completely out of order to stick a wheel up the inside there."

Over the radio at Silverstone, Horner also makes a brief connection with race director Michael Masi. "Look, that corner. He was never anywhere near alongside. It was an enormous accident. That was one hundred percent Max's corner. The full blame lies with Hamilton. That was 100% Max's corner. The full blame lies on Hamilton. Thank God he's walked away unscathed. I hope you're going to deal with it appropriately."

Team manager Jonathan Wheatley also commented: "I'm really cross about it. That corner there is not a place to put a wheel up the inside." The incident is currently with the stewards. They are investigating the incident and will come to a conclusion shortly.
