‘I was just missing the popcorn!’

There were many talking-points at World RX of Norway last weekend, but this one truly made sparks fly… Timmy Hansen and Ole Christian Veiby’s controversial coming-together in Hell in heat four on Sunday had all the makings of a box-office bust-up, with five-time world champion Johan Kristoffersson – who won the race – quipping afterwards that he was ‘just missing the popcorn’. Following a stewards’ enquiry, Veiby was disqualified from the results of the heat for the contact, while his Hansen World RX Team rival was fined €1,000 for approaching the Norwegian in his car and banging angrily on the bonnet.Needless to say, the pair did not agree about who was at fault…“OC was carrying a problem, I got up the inside of him going onto the main straight, we were wheel-to-wheel and from there, he moved three or four car-widths to the right to push me off onto the grass,” Hansen opined.
