Helmut Marko has given an update on the physical condition of Max Verstappen. The Red Bull Racing advisor says that the damage is not too bad and that the 23-year old Dutchman will be back to race in Hungary. In the interview Marko also discussed how much the crash will cost the team from Milton Keynes.

RB16B of Verstappen total loss

Speaking to German RTL, Marko let it be known that there is little left of the RB16B after the hard impact into the tyre piles of the Silverstone circuit. "The car is total loss," said Marko, who also revealed that the cost of repairs is currently estimated at €750,000. "It's a significant amount that hurts us, especially in times of budgetary constraints."

Red Bull have displayed several times that they don't agree with the ten second time penalty for Lewis Hamilton. The Austrian team have the possibility to appeal, but that doesn't seem likely. A protest is often only possible if new TV images emerge.

Verstappen motivated

Marko: "An appeal is only possible if there is new evidence. There doesn't seem to be any." Red Bull and Verstappen want to put Sunday's race behind them quickly as in two weeks time the Formula One circus will travel to Budapest. "Max will take his seat in the car again. He is very motivated," Marko concluded.
