Angry Max Verstappen hits back at ‘hypocritical’ rivals and defends Red Bull as £114m cost cap controversy dominates build-up to the US Grand Prix: ‘It’s because we’re doing well’

Max Verstappen has angrily bitten back at Red Bull’s rivals amid heavy criticism they’ve received for breaking the £114million cost cap. The breach came in a season where Verstappen only beat Lewis Hamilton to the world title on a dramatic final raceday in Abu Dhabi. Brit Hamilton, perhaps unsurprisingly, has been among Verstappen and Red Bull’s most outspoken critics in the wake of the decision. It is understood to be unlikely the 2021 title will be scrubbed. It is understood the FIA have offered an ‘accepted breach agreement’ to Red Bull,  which would see the team admit to their wrongdoing and lose the right to an appeal. However, it would also mean there is no chance of Verstappen being deducted championship points last season, when Red Bull carried him to a hugely controversial last-lap title win which saw him best Hamilton by just eight points.
