F1 world champion Max Verstappen demands drivers are given ‘better protection’ at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit following the ‘incredibly sad’ death of 18-year-old Dutch driver Dilano van ‘T Hoff

World champion Max Verstappen called for changes to Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps circuit after the ‘unacceptable’ death there on Saturday of an 18-year-old Dutch driver. With Formula One due in Spa at the end of the month, the Canadian said: ‘The story of the day is not the sprint race here. ‘It’s not fair what happened and that corner needs to be looked at and changed because we’ve lost two young talents in the span of five years. Without changes they’d be playing with fire again in a couple of weeks. A minute’s silence was held on the grid before Saturday’s Formula Two race.
