'I feel bad for Verstappen, but this is what the fans want to see'

Although he feels it's a shame that Verstappen has been robbed of a good result twice now, AlphaTauri team boss Franz Tost can't help but praise the chaos at the Hungaroring as what fans watch for every weekend.

"I'm really sorry for Max that he has now been taken out of the race twice through no fault of his own, but overall it was an exciting race", Tost was quoted as saying by Motorsport-Total. "The race itself was fantastic for Formula 1."

Tost continued: "It was an interesting race to the end - also how Hamilton caught up. Pretty good, that's what people want to see. And another driver, another team won. That's good."

This is what people want to see

Tost then points specifically to the chaos at the first corner, set in motion by an error from Valtteri Bottas, as the peak of the excitement. Tost: "This crash in the first corner ... I'm sorry to say that, but people want to see it. As long as no driver is injured, people want to see it."
